(Week 19 of the year: Wednesday)
R. Above the heavens is the glory of the Lord.
Praise, O servants of the Lord,
praise the name of the Lord!
May the name of the Lord be blessed
both now and for evermore! (R.)
2. From the rising of the sun to its setting
praised be the name of the Lord!
High above all nations is the Lord,
above the heavens his glory. (R.)
3. Who is like the Lord, our God,
who has risen on high to his throne
yet stoops from the heights to look down,
to look down upon heaven and earth? (R.)
Your precepts, O Lord, are all of them sure;
they stand firm for ever and ever.
