Psalm 145, 148, and 149
BEAUTIFUL Psalm 145
I will extol You, my God and king;
I will bless Your Name forever.
Every day I will bless You; I will praise Your Name forever.
Great is the LORD and worthy of high praise; God’s grandeur is beyond understanding.
One generation praises Your deeds to the next and proclaims Your mighty works. They speak of the splendor of Your majestic glory, tell of Your wondrous deeds. They speak of Your fearsome power and attest to Your great deeds. They publish the renown of Your abounding goodness and joyfully sing of Your justice.
The LORD is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in love. The LORD is good to all, compassionate to every creature.
All Your works give You thanks, O LORD and Your faithful ones bless You. They speak of the glory of Your reign and tell of Your great works.
Making known to all Your power, the glorious splendor of Your rule. Your reign is a reign for all ages, Your dominion for all generations.
The LORD is trustworthy in every word, and faithful in every work.
The LORD supports all who are falling and raises up all who are bowed down. they eyes of all look hopefully to You; You give them their food in due season. You open wide Your Hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing.
You, LORD, are just in all Your ways, faithful in all Your works. You, LORD, are near to all who call upon You, to all who call upon You in truth.
You satisfy the desire of those who fear You; You hear their cry and save them.
You, LORD, watch over all who love You, but all the wicked You destroy.
My mouth will speak Your praises, LORD; all flesh will bless Your holy Name forever.
Psalm 148 Hallelujah! Praise the LORD from the heavens; give praise in the heights.
Praise Him, all you angels; give praise , all you hosts.
Praise Him, sun and moon; give praise, all shining stars.
Praise Him, highest heavens, you waters above the heavens.
Let them all praise the LORD’s Name; for the LORD commanded and they were created, assigned them duties forever, gave them tasks that will never change.
Praise the LORD from the earth, you sea monsters and all deep waters; you lightning and hail, snow and clouds, storm winds that fulfill His command; you mountains and all hills, fruit trees and all cedars; you animals wild and tame, you creatures that crawl and fly; you kings of the earth and all peoples, princes and all who govern on earth; young men and women too, old and young alike.
Let them all praise the LORD’s Name, for His Name alone is exalted, majestic above earth and heaven.
The LORD has lifted high the horn of His people, to the glory of all the faithful, of Israel, the people near to their God. Hallelujah!
Psalm 149:1-3 Hallelujah! Sing to the LORD a new song, a hymn in the assembly of the faithful. Let Israel be glad in their Maker, the people of Zion rejoice in their King. Let them praise His Name in festive dance, make music with tambourine and lyre.
