ACAD – Praise: Psalm 145

Praise to God the King

A psalm of praise. Of David.

I praise your greatness, my God the King;
    I will praise you forever and ever.
I will praise you every day;
    I will praise you forever and ever.
The Lord is great and worthy of our praise;
    no one can understand how great he is.

Parents will tell their children what you have done.
    They will retell your mighty acts,
wonderful majesty, and glory.
    And I will think about your miracles.
They will tell about the amazing things you do,
    and I will tell how great you are.
They will remember your great goodness
    and will sing about your fairness.

The Lord is kind and shows mercy.
    He does not become angry quickly but is full of love.
The Lord is good to everyone;
    he is merciful to all he has made.
Lord, everything you have made will praise you;
    those who belong to you will bless you.
They will tell about the glory of your kingdom
    and will speak about your power.
Then everyone will know the mighty things you do
    and the glory and majesty of your kingdom.
Your kingdom will go on and on,
    and you will rule forever.

The Lord will keep all his promises;
    he is loyal to all he has made.
The Lord helps those who have been defeated
    and takes care of those who are in trouble.
All living things look to you for food,
    and you give it to them at the right time.
You open your hand,
    and you satisfy all living things.

Everything the Lord does is right.
    He is loyal to all he has made.
The Lord is close to everyone who prays to him,
    to all who truly pray to him.
He gives those who respect him what they want.
    He listens when they cry, and he saves them.
The Lord protects everyone who loves him,
    but he will destroy the wicked.

I will praise the Lord.
    Let everyone praise his holy name forever.
