Oh Lord God of Israel! thou art the God, even thou alone! of all the kingdoms of the earth,[1] therefore let them praise the name of the Lord; for His name alone is excellent; His glory is above earth and heaven.[2] He is the living God, and an everlasting King; at His wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide His indignation.[3] Who is like unto thee, O Lord! Who is like thee! Glorious in holiness! fearful in praises! doing wonders![4] Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment; who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain; who layeth the beams of His chambers in the waters; who maketh the clouds His chariot; who walketh upon the wings of the wind. He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth; he toucheth the hills, and they smoke.[5]

The glory of the Lord shall endure for ever; the Lord shall rejoice in His works. I will sing unto the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.[6] From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same, the Lord's name is to be praised! Blessed be the name of the Lord, from this time forth and for evermore.[7]
