1Hallelujah.

I will praise the LORD with all my heart l Ps 138, 1 . in the assembled congregation of the upright.* 2Great are the works of the LORD, to be treasured for all their delights. 3Majestic and glorious is your* work, your wise design endures forever. 4You won renown for your wondrous deeds; gracious and merciful is the LORD. m Ps 103, 8; 112, 4 . 5You gave food to those who fear you,* mindful of your covenant forever. 6You showed powerful deeds to your people, giving them the lands* of the nations. 7The works of your hands are right and true, reliable all your decrees, 8Established forever and ever, to be observed with loyalty and care. 9You sent deliverance to your people, ratified your covenant forever; holy and awesome is your name. 10The fear of the LORD * is the beginning of wisdom; n Prv 1, 7; 9, 10; Sir 1, 16 . prudent are all who live by it. Your praise endures forever.
