Psalm 113

(from Day 23 Morning Prayer)

Laudate, pueri

  1. PRAISE the Lord, ye servants: O praise the Name of the Lord.
  2. Blessed be the Name of the Lord: from this time forth for evermore.
  3. The Lord's Name is praised: from the rising up of the sun unto the going down of the same.
  4. The Lord is high above all heathen: and his glory above the heavens.
  5. Who is like unto the Lord our God, that hath his dwelling so high: and yet humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven and earth?
  6. He taketh up the simple out of the dust: and lifteth the poor out of the mire;
  7. That he may set him with the princes: even with the princes of his people.
  8. He maketh the barren woman to keep house: and to be a joyful mother of children.
