Psalm 147. Laudate Dominum.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Thirtieth Day - Evening Prayer.
  1. Hallelujah! How good it is to sing praises to our God! *
    how pleasant it is to honor him with praise!
  2. The Lord rebuilds Jerusalem; *
    he gathers the exiles of Israel.
  3. He heals the brokenhearted *
    and binds up their wounds.
  4. He counts the number of the stars *
    and calls them all by their names.
  5. Great is our Lord and mighty in power; *
    there is no limit to his wisdom.
  6. The Lord lifts up the lowly, *
    but casts the wicked to the ground.
  7. Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving; *
    make music to our God upon the harp.
  8. He covers the heavens with clouds *
    and prepares rain for the earth;
  9. He makes grass to grow upon the mountains *
    and green plants to serve mankind.
  10. He provides food for flocks and herds *
    and for the young ravens when they cry.
  11. He is not impressed by the might of a horse; *
    he has no pleasure in the strength of a man;
  12. But the Lord has pleasure in those who fear him, *
    in those who await his gracious favor.
  13. Worship the Lord, O Jerusalem; *
    praise your God, O Zion;
  14. For he has strengthened the bars of your gates; *
    he has blessed your children within you.
  15. He has established peace on your borders; *
    he satisfies you with the finest wheat.
  16. He sends out his command to the earth, *
    and his word runs very swiftly.
  17. He gives snow like wool; *
    he scatters hoarfrost like ashes.
  18. He scatters his hail like bread crumbs; *
    who can stand against his cold?
  19. He sends forth his word and melts them; *
    he blows with his wind, and the waters flow.
  20. He declares his word to Jacob, *
    his statutes and his judgments to Israel.
  21. He has not done so to any other nation; *
    to them he has not revealed his judgments. Hallelujah!
