1 Hallelujah. Praise, O my soul, the Lord.
2 I will praise the Lord throughout my life: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.
3 Put not your trust in princes, in the son of man, in whom there is no salvation.
4 When his spirit goeth forth, he returneth to his native earth: on that very day perish his thoughts.
5 But happy is he who hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is on the Lord his God;
6 Who hath made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that is therein; who keepeth truth for ever;
7 Who executeth justice for the oppressed: who giveth bread to the hungry: the Lord looseneth the prisoners;
8 The Lord causeth the blind to see; the Lord raiseth up those who are bowed down; the Lord loveth the righteous:
9 The Lord guardeth the strangers; the fatherless and widow he helpeth up; but the way of the wicked he maketh crooked.
10 The Lord will reign for ever, even thy God, O Zion, unto all generations. Hallelujah.
