1 Hallelujah. Praise the LORD, O my soul.
2 I will praise the LORD while I live; I will sing praises unto my God while I have my being.
3 Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.
4 His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his dust; in that very day his thoughts perish.
5 Happy is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD his God,
6 Who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is; who keepeth truth for ever;
7 Who executeth justice for the oppressed; who giveth bread to the hungry. The LORD looseth the prisoners;
8 The LORD openeth the eyes of the blind; the LORD raiseth up them that are bowed down; the LORD loveth the righteous;
9 The LORD preserveth the strangers; He upholdeth the fatherless and the widow; but the way of the wicked He maketh crooked.
10 The LORD will reign for ever, Thy God, O Zion, unto all generations. Hallelujah.
