Psalm 113

  • 1 Praise God: ye servants of the Lord,
  • O praise, the Lord’s name praise.
  • 2 Yea, blessed be the name of God
  • from this time forth always.
  • 3 From rising sun to where it sets,
  • God’s name is to be praised.
  • 4 Above all nations God is high,
  • his glory highly raised.
  • 5 Unto the Lord our God that dwells
  • on high, who can compare?
  • 6 Himself that humbleth things to see
  • in heav’n and earth that are.
  • 7 He from the dust doth raise the poor,
  • that very low doth lie;
  • And from the dunghill lifts the man
  • oppressed with poverty;
  • 8 That he may highly him advance,
  • and with the princes set;
  • With those that of his people are
  • the chief, ev’n princes great.
  • 9 The barren woman house to keep
  • he maketh, and to be
  • Of sons a mother full of joy.
  • Praise to the Lord give ye.
