Psalm 145
[figure 2b]
Happy are those who dwell in Your house
they will praise You yet again, Selah.
Happy is the people whose lot is such
Happy is the people for whom the Lord is God.
A psalm of praise by David:
I will exalt You, my God, the King
I will bless Your Name for ever and ever.
Every day I will bless You
I will praise Your Name for ever and ever.
Great is the Lord and very worthy of praise
there is no probing His greatness.
One generation will acclaim what You have done to another
they will tell Your mighty acts.
I will discuss the majestic glory of Your beauty
and the instances of Your wonders.
They will talk of the power of Your awesome deeds
I will relate Your greatness.
They will give expression to the memory of the amplitude of Your goodness
they will sing of Your righteousness.
The Lord is gracious and merciful
long on patience and great in caring.
The Lord is good to all
His mercy is upon all that He has done.
All that You have done will give thanks to You, Lord
and those who care for You will bless You.
They will talk of the glory of Your kingdom
they will speak of Your might.
To make known to humanity His mighty deeds
and the glorious majesty of His kingdom.
Your kingdom is a kingdom for all ages
Your reign is for each generation.
The Lord supports all those who fall
He stands erect all those who are bowed over.
The eyes of all look expectantly to You
You give them their food in its proper time.
You open Your hand
giving contentedness sufficiently to all living beings.
The Lord is righteous in all His ways
caring to all that He has done.[]
The Lord is near to all who call on Him
to all who call on Him in truth.
He does the will of those who fear Him
He hears their cry and saves them.
The Lord watches over all those who love Him
He destroys all the wicked.
My mouth will speak the praise of the Lord
All animate beings will bless His holy Name for ever and ever.
We will bless the Lord
from now unto eternity.
Praise the Lord!
