|Praise the LORD. |
Praise the name of the LORD,
give praise, O servants of the LORD,
|Praise the Lord. Psalm 135(v134)|
|you that stand in the house of the LORD, |
in the courts of the house of our God!
|Praise the LORD, for the LORD is good; |
sing to his name, for he is gracious!
|For the LORD has chosen Jacob for himself, |
Israel as his own possession.
|For I know that the LORD is great, |
and that our Lord is above all gods.
|Whatever the LORD pleases he does, |
in heaven and on earth,
in the seas and all deeps.
|He it is who makes the clouds rise at the end of the earth, |
who makes lightnings for the rain and brings forth the wind from his storehouses.
|He it was who smote the first-born of Egypt, |
both of man and of beast;
|who in thy midst, O Egypt, sent signs and wonders |
against Pharaoh and all his servants;
|who smote many nations |
and slew mighty kings,
|Sihon, king of the Amorites, |
and Og, king of Bashan,
and all the kingdoms of Canaan,
|and gave their land as a heritage, |
a heritage to his people Israel.
|Thy name, O LORD, endures for ever, |
thy renown, O LORD, throughout all ages.
|For the LORD will vindicate his people, |
and have compassion on his servants.
|The idols of the nations are silver and gold, |
the work of men's hands.
|They have mouths, but they speak not, |
they have eyes, but they see not,
|they have ears, but they hear not, |
nor is there any breath in their mouths.
|Like them be those who make them! - |
yea, every one who trusts in them!
|O house of Israel, bless the LORD! |
O house of Aaron, bless the LORD!
|O house of Levi, bless the LORD! |
You that fear the LORD, bless the LORD!
|Blessed be the LORD from Zion, |
he who dwells in Jerusalem!
Praise the LORD!
