Psalm 113

In Praise of the Lord's Goodness

1Praise the Lord!

You servants of the Lord,

praise his name!

2May his name be praised,

now and forever.

3From the east to the west

praise the name of the Lord!

4The Lord rules over all nations;

his glory is above the heavens.

5There is no one like the Lord our God.

He lives in the heights above,

6but he bends down

to see the heavens and the earth.

7He raises the poor from the dust;

he lifts the needy from their misery

8and makes them companions of princes,

the princes of his people.

9He honors the childless wife in her home;

he makes her happy by giving her children.

Praise the Lord!
