1 Dauid praiseth God for his fame, 8 For his goodnes, 11 For his kingdome, 14 For his prouidence, 17 For his sauing mercie.
[Dauids Psalme of praise.] I will extoll thee, my God, O King: and I will blesse thy name for euer and euer.
Euery day wil I blesse thee: and I will praise thy Name for euer and euer.
Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised: and his greatnes is vnsearchable.3
One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shal declare thy mightie actes.
Gods goodnesse, and trueth.
I will speake of the glorious honour of thy maiestie: and of thy wonderous workes.5
And men shall speake of the might of thy terrible acts: and I wil declare thy greatnesse.6
They shall abundantly vtter the memory of thy great goodnesse: and shall sing of thy righteousnesse.
The Lord is gracious and full of compassion: slow to anger, and of great mercy.8
The Lord is good to all: and his tender mercies are ouer all his workes.
All thy workes shall praise thee, O Lord: and thy Saints shal blesse thee.
They shall speake of the glory of thy kingdome: and talke of thy power.
To make knowen to the sonnes of men his mightie actes: and the glorious Maiestie of his kingdome.
Thy kingdome is an euerlasting kingdome: and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations.13
The Lord vpholdeth all that fall: and raiseth vp all those that bee bowed downe.
The eyes of all waite vpon thee: and thou giuest them their meat in due season.15
Thou openest thine hand: and satisfiest the desire of euery liuing thing.
The Lord is righteous in all his wayes: and holy in all his works.17
The Lord is nigh vnto all them that call vpon him: to all that call vpon him in trueth.
Hee will fulfill the desire of them that feare him: he also will heare their cry, and will saue them.
The Lord preserueth all them that loue him: but all the wicked will he destroy.
My mouth shall speake the praise of the Lord: and let all flesh blesse his holy Name for euer and euer.
