Great are the works of the Lord;
they are pondered by all who delight in them.
Glorious and majestic are His deeds,
and His righteousness endures forever.
Praise the Lord from the heavens,
praise Him in the heights above. . .
Praise Him, sun and moon, . . .
Praise Him, you highest heavens. . .
The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the works of His hands.
But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever,
the purposes of His heart through all generations.
For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is His love for those who fear Him;
as far as the east is from the west, . . . .
so the Lord has compassion on those who fear Him.
. . . From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets. . . .
God shines forth.
