Psalm 135. Laudate Nomen.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Twenty-eighth Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. Hallelujah! Praise the Name of the Lord; *
    give praise, you servants of the Lord,
  2. You who stand in the house of the Lord, *
    in the courts of the house of our God.
  3. Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good; *
    sing praises to his Name, for it is lovely.
  4. For the Lord has chosen Jacob for 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. The Lord does whatever pleases him, in heaven and on earth, *
    in the seas and all the deeps.
  7. He brings up rain clouds from the ends of the earth; *
    he sends out lightning with the rain, and brings the winds out of his storehouse.
  8. It was he who struck down the firstborn of Egypt, *
    the firstborn both of man and beast.
  9. He sent signs and wonders into the midst of you, O Egypt, *
    against Pharaoh and all his servants.
  10. He overthrew many nations *
    and put mighty kings to death:
  11. Sihon, king of the Amorites, and Og, the king of Bashan, *
    and all the kingdoms of Canaan.
  12. He gave their land to be an inheritance, *
    an inheritance for Israel his people.
  13. O Lord, your Name is everlasting; *
    your renown, O Lord, endures from age to age.
  14. For the Lord gives his people justice *
    and shows compassion to his servants.
  15. The idols of the heathen are silver and gold, *
    the work of human hands.
  16. They have mouths, but they cannot speak; *
    eyes have they, but they cannot see.
  17. They have ears, but they cannot hear; *
    neither is there any breath in their mouth.
  18. Those who make them are like them, *
    and so are all who put their trust in them.
  19. Bless the Lord, O house of Israel; *
    O house of Aaron, bless the Lord.
  20. Bless the Lord, O house of Levi; *
    you who fear the Lord, bless the Lord.
  21. Blessed be the Lord out of Zion, *
    who dwells in Jerusalem. Haullelujah!
