The Majesty and Condescension of God
1Praise the Lord!
⚓Praise, O servants of the Lord,
Praise the name of the Lord!
2⚓Blessed be the name of the Lord
From this time forth and forevermore!
3⚓From the rising of the sun to its going down
The Lord’s name is to be praised.
4The Lordis⚓high above all nations,
⚓His glory above the heavens.
5⚓Who is like the Lord our God,
Who dwells on high,
6⚓Who humbles Himself to behold
The things that are in the heavens and in the earth?
7⚓He raises the poor out of the dust,
And lifts the ⚓needy out of the ash heap,
8That He may ⚓seat him with princes—
With the princes of His people.
9⚓He grants the barren woman a home,
Like a joyful mother of children.
Praise the Lord!
