(By David for praise.) The LORD Is Kind and Merciful 145 1I will praise you, my God and King, and always honor your name. 2I will praise you each day and always honor your name. 3You are wonderful, LORD, and you deserve all praise, because you are much greater than anyone can understand. 4Each generation will announce to the next your wonderful and powerful deeds. 5I will keep thinking about your marvelous glory and your mighty miracles.[B] 6Everyone will talk about your fearsome deeds, and I will tell all nations how great you are. 7They will celebrate and sing about your matchless mercy and your power to save. 8You are merciful, LORD! You are kind and patient and always loving. 9You are good to everyone, and you take care of all your creation. 10All creation will thank you, and your loyal people will praise you. 11They will tell about your marvelous kingdom and your power. 12Then everyone will know about the mighty things you do and your glorious kingdom. 13Your kingdom will never end, and you will rule forever. Our LORD, you keep your word and do everything you say.[C] 14When someone stumbles or falls, you give a helping hand. 15Everyone depends on you, and when the time is right, you provide them with food. 16By your own hand you satisfy the desires of all who live. 17Our LORD, everything you do is kind and thoughtful, 18and you are near to everyone whose prayers are sincere. 19You satisfy the desires of all your worshipers, and you come to save them when they ask for help. 20You take care of everyone who loves you, but you destroy the wicked. 21I will praise you, LORD, and everyone will respect your holy name forever.
