Praise the Lord, ye servants of the Lord:
praise ye the Name of the Lord.
Let the Name of the Lord
now and for evermore.
From the rising of the sun to the setting thereof:
worthy of praise is the Name of the Lord.
High is the Lord
above all the nations:
and above the heavens in His glory.
Who is like unto the Lord
our God, who dwelleth on high:
and beholdeth what is below in heaven
and on earth?
Whom from the earth raiseth up the needy one:
and from the dunghill lifteth up the poor one.
To place him with the princes
with the princes of His people.
Who maketh the barren woman
to dwell in her house:
the joyful mother of many children.
Ant. Blessed be the Name of the Lord
for ever more.
Ant. But our God.
