Psalm 135. Laudate Nomen.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Twenty-eighth Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. O PRAISE the Lord, laud ye the Name of the Lord; *
    praise it, O ye servants of the Lord;
  2. Ye that stand in the house of the Lord, *
    in the courts of the house of our God.
  3. O praise the Lord, for the Lord is gracious; *
    O sing praises unto his Name, for it is lovely.
  4. For why? the Lord hath chosen Jacob unto himself, *
    and Israel for his own possession.
  5. For I know that the Lord is great, *
    and that our Lord is above all gods.
  6. Whatsoever the Lord pleased, that did he in heaven, and in earth; *
    and in the sea, and in all deep places.
  7. He bringeth forth the clouds from the ends of the world, *
    and sendeth forth lightnings with the rain, bringing the winds out of his treasuries.
  8. He smote the firstborn of Egypt, *
    both of man and beast.
  9. He hath sent tokens and wonders into the midst of thee, O thou land of Egypt; *
    upon Pharaoh, and all his servants.
  10. He smote divers nations, *
    and slew mighty kings:
  11. Sihon, king of the Amorites; and Og, the king of Bashan; *
    and all the kingdoms of Canaan;
  12. And gave their land to be an heritage, *
    even an heritage unto Israel his people.
  13. Thy Name, O Lord, endureth for ever; *
    so doth thy memorial, O Lord, from one generation to another.
  14. For the Lord will avenge his people, *
    and be gracious unto his servants.
  15. As for the images of the heathen, they are but silver and gold; *
    the work of men's hands.
  16. They have mouths, and speak not; *
    eyes have they, but they see not.
  17. They have ears, and yet they hear not; *
    neither is there any breath in their mouths.
  18. They that make them are like unto them; *
    and so are all they that put their trust in them.
  19. Praise the Lord, ye house of Israel; *
    praise the Lord, ye house of Aaron.
  20. Praise the Lord, ye house of Levi; *
    ye that fear the Lord, praise the Lord.
  21. Praised be the Lord out of Sion, *
    who dwelleth at Jerusalem.
