The Lord an Abundant Helper.

1 1Praise 2the Lord!

aPraise the Lord, O my soul!

2 I will praise the Lord awhile I live;

I will bsing praises to my God while I have my being.

3 aDo not trust in princes,

In 1mortal bman, in whom there is cno salvation.

4 His aspirit departs, he breturns to 1the earth;

In that very day his cthoughts perish.

5 How ablessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,

Whose bhope is in the Lord his God,

6 Who amade heaven and earth,

The bsea and all that is in them;

Who ckeeps 1faith forever;

7 Who aexecutes justice for the oppressed;

Who bgives food to the hungry.

The Lord csets the prisoners free.

8 The Lord aopens the eyes of the blind;

The Lord braises up those who are bowed down;

The Lord cloves the righteous;

9 The Lord 1aprotects the 2strangers;

He 3bsupports the fatherless and the widow,

But He 4thwarts cthe way of the wicked.

10 The Lord will areign forever,

Your God, O Zion, to all generations.

1Praise 2the Lord!
