1 Praise the LORD! You who serve the LORD—praise! Praise the LORD's name!
2 Let the LORD's name be blessed from now until forever from now!
3 From sunrise to sunset, let the LORD's name be praised!
4 The LORD is high over all the nations; God's glory is higher than the skies!
5 Who could possibly compare to the LORD our God? God rules from on high;
6 he has to come down to even see heaven and earth!
7 God lifts up the poor from the dirt and raises up the needy from the garbage pile
8 to seat them with leaders— with the leaders of his own people!
9 God nests the once barren woman at home— now a joyful mother with children! Praise the LORD!
