PSALM 145:1-21

 1  My God, O King, in praise I will exalt you;
    And I will bless Your name forevermore.
    Yes, every day time and again I'l1 bless You
    And praise Your name both now and evermore.
    Great is the LORD. How worthy to be praised!
    His greatness is unsearchable.
    Your works each race to coming race will praise
    And tell of all Your mighty acts.
 2  On all Your splendor, Your majestic glory,
    On all Your wondrous works, I'll meditate.
    Men tell the power of all Your works most awesome,
    And I will join, Your greatness to proclaim.
    They'll Your abundant goodness celebrate;
    With joy they'll sing Your righteousness.
    The LORD is gracious and compassionate,
    To anger slow, and rich in love.
 3  The LORD is good to all of His creation,
    Compassion has on all that He has made.
    All you have made, O LORD, with thanks will praise you;
    Your chosen holy ones will You extol.
    The glory of Your kingdom they will tell,
    The greatness of Your power proclaim,
    That sons of men may know Your mighty acts,
    Your kingdom's splendor glorious.
 4  Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom;
    Your rule endures through generations all.
    The Lord upholds all those who down are falling
    And raises up all those who are bowed down.
    The eyes of all on earth look up to You;
    You give them food all in good time.
    Your opened hand fills every need of life;
    The LORD is good to all that live.
 5  The LORD is near to all who call upon Him,
    To all who call on Him with purpose true.
    He satisfies the wants of all who fear Him;
    He hears their cry and saves them everyone.
    Tbe LORD keeps watch o'er all those loving Him,
    But wicked all He will destroy.
    My mouth and all creation praise the LORD!
    Forever praise His holy name.
