You who serve God, praise God!
Just to speak his name is praise!
Just to remember God is a blessing—
now and tomorrow and always.
From east to west, from dawn to dusk,
keep lifting all your praises to God!
Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise;
his greatness no one can fathom.
One generation commends your works to another;
they tell of your mighty acts.
They speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty.
They tell of the power of your awesome works.
They celebrate your abundant goodness.
The Lord is gracious and compassionate,
slow to anger and rich in love.he Lord is good to all;
he has compassion on all he has made.
That day the Spirit led Simeon to the Temple.
So when Mary and Joseph came to present the baby Jesus to the Lord,
Simeon was there. He took the child in his arms and praised God, saying,
“Sovereign Lord, now let your servant die in peace,
as you have promised. I have seen your salvation,
which you have prepared for all people.
