Hallelujah! Praise, you servants of the Lord and his name, may he be praised this time and forevermore, from the rising of the sun to its going down. The Lord is high above all nations; his glory is above the heavens. Who is like the Lord, who has his seat on high, whose throne is in the heavens? He raises up the poor out of the dust, and lifts the needy from the ash heap that he may sit with princes. He settles the barren woman in her home, as a joyful mother of children. Hallelujah!
