Praise the LORD! Praise, O servants of the LORD; praise the name of the LORD. Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time on and forevermore. From the rising of the sun to its setting the name of the LORD is to be praised. The LORD is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens. Who is like the LORD our God, who is seated on high, who looks far down on the heavens and the earth? He raises the poor from the dust, and lifts the needy from the ash heap, to make them sit with princes, with the princes of his people. He gives the barren woman a home, making her the joyous mother of children. Praise the LORD! (Psalm 113, NRSV)
From the rising of the sun to its setting we should praise the Lord!
Why should we praise the Lord?
He raises the poor from the dust.
He lifts the needy from the ash heap
He makes the lowly sit with princes.
He gives the barren woman a home, making her the joyous mother of children.
He comes to the help of those in need.
That is why we praise the Lord because He is worthy to be praised!
