Psalm 147A

1 Alleluia!

1 How good to sing psalms to our God;

 how pleasant to chant fitting praise!

2 The LORD builds up Jerusalem

 and brings back Israel’s exiles;

 3 he heals the brokenhearted;

 he binds up all their wounds.

 4 He counts out the number of the stars;

 he calls each one by its name.

5 Our Lord is great and almighty;

 his wisdom can never be measured.

 6 The LORD lifts up the lowly;

 he casts down the wicked to the ground.

 7 O sing to the LORD, giving thanks;

 sing psalms to our God with the harp.

8 He covers the heavens with clouds;

 he prepares the rain for the earth,

 making mountains sprout with grass,

 and plants to serve human needs.

 9 He provides the cattle with their food,

 and young ravens that call upon him.

10 His delight is not in horses,

 nor his pleasure in a warrior’s strength.

 11 The LORD delights in those who revere him,

 those who wait for his merciful love.
