Psalm 145:8–19

The Lord is gracious and full of compassion,   slow to anger and of great kindness.

The Lord is loving to everyone   and his compassion is over all his works.

All your works praise you, O Lord,   and your faithful servants bless you.

They make known the glory of your kingdom   and speak of your power; that the peoples may know of your power   and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.

Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom;   your dominion endures throughout all ages.

The Lord is faithful in all his words   and merciful in all his deeds.

The Lord upholds all those who fall;   he lifts up those who are bowed down.

The eyes of all wait upon you, O Lord,   and you give them their food in due season.

You open wide your hand   and satisfy the needs of every living creature.

The Lord is righteous in all his ways   and loving in all his works.

The Lord is near to those who call upon him,   to all who call upon him faithfully.
