Psalm 113 – Our Praise Before Us

Psalm 113(NIV)

Psalm 113

Praise the Lord.  

Praise the Lord, you his servants; 

praise the name of the Lord. 

Let the name of the Lordbe praised, 

both now and forevermore.

From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, 

the name of the Lordis to be praised. 

The Lordis exalted over all the nations, 

his glory above the heavens.

Who is like the Lordour God, 

the One who sits enthroned on high,

who stoops down to look 

on the heavens and the earth?

He raises the poor from the dust 

and lifts the needy from the ash heap;

he seats them with princes, 

with the princes of his people.

He settles the childless woman in her home 

as a happy mother of children.

Praise the Lord.
