Lyrics:

Psalm 135.1  Hallelujah! Praise the LORD’s name!
Praise Him, servants of the LORD,
2 You that in the LORD’s house serve Him,
in God’s courtyard standing guard.
3 Praise the LORD! How good the LORD is!
Sing His name–how sweet its tone!
4 For the LORD has chosen Jacob,
Israel to be His own.

5 Well I know how great the LORD is;
our LORD is above all gods.
6 For the LORD does what He pleases
in all heav’n, earth, deeps, and floods,
7 He it is Who lifts the vapors
from the ends of earth and sea,
Who with lightnings brings the rain down,
from His store the wind sets free,

8 Who slew all of Egypt’s firstborn,
9 on you, Egypt, wonders sent.
Signs to Pharaoh and his servants,
10 who killed kings, their kingdoms rent–
11 mighty Sihon, Og of Bashan,
then the Kings of Canaan fell!
12 God their land gave to His people,
willed it all to Israel.

13 Your name, LORD, endures forever;
Your fame, LORD, each age has known;
14 For the LORD acquits His people,
has compassion on His own.
15 Heathen idols, gold and silver,
work of human artistry;
16 Having mouths, they speak of nothing;
having eyes, they do not see.

17 Having ears, they never hearken;
they do not breathe out or in.
18 Those who make them will be like them,
all whose trust in them has been.
19 Bless the LORD, O house of Isr’el!
House of Aaron, bless the LORD!
20 Bless the LORD, O house of Levi!
All who fear Him, bless the LORD!

Blessings to the LORD you worship!
21 Blessed from Zion be the LORD,
He whose dwelling is in Salem!
Hallelujah! Praise the LORD!
 Hallelujah! Praise the LORD’s name!
Praise Him, servants of the LORD,
2 You that in the LORD’s house serve Him,
in God’s courtyard standing guard.
