Psalm 145

1 I will exalt you, O God my king:
    I will bless your name for ever and ever.
2 Every day will I bless you:
    and praise your name for ever and ever.
3 Great is the Lord, and wonderfully worthy to be praised:
    his greatness is past searching out.
4 One generation shall praise your works to another:
    and declare your mighty acts.
5 As for me, I will be talking of the glorious splendour of your majesty:
    I will tell the story of your marvellous works.
6 All people shall speak of the power of your terrible deeds:
    and I will proclaim your greatness.
7 Their lips shall flow with the remembrance of your abundant goodness:
    they shall shout for joy at your righteousness.
8 The Lord is gracious and compassionate:
    slow to anger and of great goodness.
9 The Lord is loving to every one of us:
    and his mercy is over all his works.
10 All creation praises you, O Lord:
    and your faithful servants bless your name.
11 They speak of the glory of your kingdom:
    and tell of your great might,
12 That the whole earth may know your mighty acts:
    and the glorious splendour of your kingdom.
13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom:
    and your dominion endures through all generations. (This verse is not included, as it is not in the Massoretic text)
14 The Lord upholds all those who stumble:
    and raises up those that are bowed down.
15 The eyes of all look to you in hope:
    and you give them their food in due season;
16 You open wide your hand:
    and fill all things living with your bounteous gift.
17 The Lord is just in all his ways:
    and faithful in all his dealings.
18 The Lord is near to all who call upon him:
    to all who call upon him in truth.
19 He will fulfil the desire of those that fear him:
    he will hear their cry, and save them.
20 The Lord preserves all those that love him:
    but the wicked he will utterly destroy.
21 My mouth shall speak the praises of the Lord:
    and let all flesh bless his holy name, for ever and ever.
