Praise the Lord. How good it is to sing praises to our God, how pleasant and fitting to praise him!
 The Lord builds up Jerusalem; he gathers the exiles of Israel.  He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.  He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name.  Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit.  The Lord sustains the humble but casts the wicked to the ground.
What a wonderful juxtaposition of majesty and mercy! How astonishing that our all powerful cosmos creating God should also be healer of the hurts of the rejected and the supporter of the humble.
How good and right it is to sing praise to you our Lord and Father!
