Great Is the Lord

A Song of Praise. Of David.

1I will extol you, my God and King,

and bless your name forever and ever.

2Every day I will bless you

and praise your name forever and ever.

3Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised,

and his greatness is unsearchable.

4One generation shall commend your works to another,

and shall declare your mighty acts.

5On the glorious splendor of your majesty,

and on your wondrous works, I will meditate.

6They shall speak of the might of your awesome deeds,

and I will declare your greatness.

7They shall pour forth the fame of your abundant goodness

and shall sing aloud of your righteousness.

8The Lord is gracious and merciful,

slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.

9The Lord is good to all,

and his mercy is over all that he has made.

10All your works shall give thanks to you, O Lord,

and all your saints shall bless you!

11They shall speak of the glory of your kingdom

and tell of your power,

12to make known to the children of man your mighty deeds,

and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.

13Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,

and your dominion endures throughout all generations.

[The Lord is faithful in all his words

and kind in all his works.]

14The Lord upholds all who are falling

and raises up all who are bowed down.

15The eyes of all look to you,

and you give them their food in due season.

16You open your hand;

you satisfy the desire of every living thing.

17The Lord is righteous in all his ways

and kind in all his works.

18The Lord is near to all who call on him,

to all who call on him in truth.

19He fulfills the desire of those who fear him;

he also hears their cry and saves them.

20The Lord preserves all who love him,

but all the wicked he will destroy.

21My mouth will speak the praise of the Lord,

and let all flesh bless his holy name forever and ever.
