1 Praise 1the Lord!
aPraise the Lord, O my soul!
2 bWhile I live I will praise the Lord;
I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.
3 cDo not put your trust in princes,
4 dHis spirit departs, he returns to his earth;
In that very day ehis plans perish.
5 fHappy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help,
Whose hope is in the Lord his God,
6 gWho made heaven and earth,
The sea, and all that is in them;
Who keeps truth forever,
7 hWho executes justice for the oppressed,
iWho gives food to the hungry.
jThe Lord gives freedom to the prisoners.
8 kThe Lord opens the eyes of the blind;
lThe Lord raises those who are bowed down;
The Lord loves the righteous.
9 mThe Lord watches over the strangers;
He relieves the fatherless and widow;
10 oThe Lord shall reign forever—
Your God, O Zion, to all generations.
Praise the Lord!
