Praise the | LORD, ye servants;
* O praise the | Name of the LORD.
2 Blessed be the | Name of• the LORD
* from this time | forth for evermore.
3 The LORD'S | Name is praised
* from the rising up of the sun unto the | going• down of the same.
4 The LORD is high a- | -bove all nations,
* and his | glory• above the heavens.
5 Who is like unto the LORD our God, that hath his | dwelling• so high,
* and yet humbleth himself to behold the things that are in | heaven and earth!
6 He taketh up the simple | out of• the dust,
* and lifteth the | poor out of the mire;
7 That he may set him | with the princes,
* even with the | princes of his people.
8 He maketh the barren woman | to keep house,
* and to be a | joyful •mother• of children.
Glory be to the Father, and | to the Son,
* and | to the Holy Ghost,
As it was in the beginning, is now, and | ever shall be,
* world without | end. Amen.
