1 Praise Yah!Praise the Lord, my soul.

2 While I live, I will praise the Lord.I will sing praises to my God as long as I exist.

3 Do not put your trust in princes,each a son of man in whom there is no help.

4 His spirit departs, and he returns to the earth.In that very day, his thoughts perish.

5 Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help,whose hope is in the Lord, his God:

6 who made heaven and earth,the sea, and all that is in them;who keeps truth forever;

7 who executes justice for the oppressed;who gives food to the hungry.The Lord frees the prisoners.

8 The Lord opens the eyes of the blind.The Lord raises up those who are bowed down.The Lord loves the righteous.

9 The Lord preserves the foreigners.He upholds the fatherless and widow,but the way of the wicked he turns upside down.

10 The Lord will reign forever;your God, O Zion, to all generations.Praise Yah!
