Psalm 147:1, 3-9, 11-20

Min: Praise the Lord! For it is good to sing praises to our God; For it is pleasant, and praise is beautiful.

He heals the broken-hearted And binds up their wounds. He counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by name.

Min: Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite.

The Lord lifts up the humble; He casts the wicked down to the ground.

Min: Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving; Sing praises on the harp to our God,

Who covers the heavens with clouds, Who prepares rain for the earth, Who makes grass to grow on the mountains.

Min: He gives to the beast its food, And to the young ravens that cry.

Lord takes pleasure in those who fear Him, In those who hope in His mercy.

Min: Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem! Praise your God, O Zion!

For He has strengthened the bars of your gates; He has blessed your children within you.

Min: He makes peace in your borders, And fills you with the finest wheat.

He sends out His command to the earth; His word runs very swiftly.

Min: He gives snow like wool; He scatters the frost like ashes;

He casts out His hail like morsels; Who can stand before His cold?

Min: He sends out His word and melts them; He causes His wind to blow, and the waters flow.

He declares His word to Jacob, His statutes and His judgments to Israel. Praise the Lord!
