Psalm 147. Laudate Dominum.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Thirtieth Day - Evening Prayer.
  1. PRAISE the Lord, for it is a good thing to sing praises unto our God; *
    yea, a joyful and pleasant thing it is to be thankful.
  2. The Lord doth build up Jerusalem, *
    and gather together the outcasts of Israel.
  3. He healeth those that are broken in heart, *
    and giveth medicine to heal their sickness.
  4. He telleth the number of the stars, *
    and calleth them all by their names.
  5. Great is our Lord, and great is his power; *
    yea, and his wisdom is infinite.
  6. The Lord setteth up the meek, *
    and bringeth the ungodly down to the ground.
  7. O sing unto the Lord with thanksgiving; *
    sing praises upon the harp unto our God:
  8. Who covereth the heaven with clouds, and prepareth rain for the earth; *
    and maketh the grass to grow upon the mountains, and herb for the use of men;
  9. Who giveth fodder unto the cattle, *
    and feedeth the young ravens that call upon him.
  10. He hath no pleasure in the strength of an horse; *
    neither delighteth he in any man's legs.
  11. But the Lord's delight is in them that fear him, *
    and put their trust in his mercy.
  12. Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem; *
    praise thy God, O Sion.
  13. For he hath made fast the bars of thy gates, *
    and hath blessed thy children within thee.
  14. He maketh peace in thy borders, *
    and filleth thee with the flour of wheat.
  15. He sendeth forth his commandment upon earth, *
    and his word runneth very swiftly.
  16. He giveth snow like wool, *
    and scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes.
  17. He casteth forth his ice like morsels: *
    who is able to abide his frost?
  18. He sendeth out his word, and melteth them: *
    he bloweth with his wind, and the waters flow.
  19. He showeth his word unto Jacob, *
    his statutes and ordinances unto Israel.
  20. He hath not dealt so with any nation; *
    neither have the heathen knowledge of his laws.
