Blessed be the name of the Lord-Who is like unto the Lord!

  1 Praise ye the Lord. Praise, O ye servants of the Lord, praise the name of the Lord.

  2 Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time forth and for evermore.

  3 From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the Lord's name is to be praised.

  4 The Lord is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens.

  5 Who is like unto the Lord our God, who dwelleth on high,

  6 Who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the earth!

  7 He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill;

  8 That he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people.

  9 He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the Lord.
