I will praise you, my God and King,
and bless your name forever and ever.
I will bless you every day, and I will praise you forever more.
Great is the Lord! He is most worthy of praise!
His greatness is beyond discovery!
Let each generation tell its children
\of your mighty acts.
I will mediate* on your majestic, glorious splendor
and your wonderful miracles.
Your awe-inspiring deeds will be on every tongue;
I will proclaim your greatness.
Everyone will share the story of your righteousness.
The Lord is kind and merciful
slow to get angry, full of unfailing love.
The Lord is good to everyone. He showers compassion
on all his creation. All of your works will thank you, Lord,
and your faithful followers will bless you.
They will talk together about the glory of your kingdom;
they will celebrate examples of your power.
They will tell about your mighty deeds
and about the majesty and glory of your reign.
For your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom.
You rule generation after generation.
The Lord is faithful in all he says;
he is gracious in all he does.*
The Lord helps the fallen and lifts up those bent under their loads.
All eyes look to you for help;
you give them their food as they need it.
When you open your hand,
you satisfy the hungry and thirst of every living thing.
The Lord is righteous in everything he does;
he is filled with kindness.
The Lord is close to all who call on him,
yes, to all who call on him sincerely.
He fulfills the desires of those who fear him;
he hears their cries for help and rescues them,
The Lord protects all those who love him, he destroys the wicked.
I will praise the Lord, and everyone on earth will bless his holy
name forever and ever.
