1 Praise the Lord! Servants of the Lord, praise him! Praise the Lord’s name. 2 May the Lord’s name be blessed, now and forever more. 3 May the Lord’s name be praised from the rising sun in the east to the place where the sun goes down. 4 The Lord is higher than all nations. His glory rises to the skies. 5 No person is like the Lord our God. God sits high in heaven. 6 ˻God is so high above us˼ that he must look down to see the sky and the earth, 7 God lifts poor people out of the dirt. God takes beggars from the garbage dump. 8 And God makes those people important. God makes those people important leaders. 9 A woman might not have children. But God will give children to her and make her happy. Praise the Lord!
