1 Praise GOD: ye servants of the LORD,
O praise, the LORD’s name praise.
2 Yea, blessèd be the name of GOD
from this time forth always.
3 From rising sun to where it sets,
GOD’s name is to be praised.
4 Above all nations GOD is high,
‘bove heav’ns his glory raised.
5 Unto the LORD our God that dwells
on high, who can compare?
6 Himself that humbleth things to see
in heav’n and earth that are.
7 He from the dust doth raise the poor,
that very low doth lie;
And from the dunghill lifts the man
oppressed with poverty;
8 That he may highly him advance,
and with the princes set;
With those that of his people are
the chief, ev’n princes great.
9 The barren woman house to keep
he maketh, and to be
Of sons a mother full of joy.
Praise to the LORD give ye.
This Psalm can be sung to the tune St Ethelreda which you can hear here.
