Psalm 111

R. How great are the works of the Lord! 

I will give thanks to the LORD with all my heart
in the company and assembly of the just.
Great are the works of the LORD,
exquisite in all their delights. 

R. How great are the works of the Lord! 

Majesty and glory are his work,
and his justice endures forever.
He has won renown for his wondrous deeds;
gracious and merciful is the LORD. 

R. How great are the works of the Lord! 

He has given food to those who fear him;
he will forever be mindful of his covenant.
He has made known to his people the power of his works,
giving them the inheritance of the nations. 

R. How great are the works of the Lord!
