Psalms 112

 1 Alleluia. Praise the Lord, children. Praise the name of the Lord 2 Blessed is the name of the Lord, from this time forward and even forever 3 From the rising of the sun, even to its setting, praiseworthy is the name of the Lord 4 The Lord is high above all nations, and his glory is high above the heavens 5 Who is like the Lord, our God, who dwells on high 6 and who gazes upon the humble things in heaven and on earth 7 He lifts up the needy from the ground, and he urges the poor away from filth 8 so that he may place him with the leaders, with the leaders of his people 9 He causes a barren woman to live in a house, as the joyful mother of sons
