LORD our God, you are great

for your greatness is far beyond us;
every day I’ll praise your holy name.
every day I’ll praise your holy name.

2 Each generation to the next
will proclaim your works of splendor,
and celebrate your mighty deeds.
Every day I’ll praise your holy name. [Refrain]

y anunciará tus poderosos hechos;
