Praise the LORD! My Soul, O Praise Him!

  1. Praise the LORD! My soul, O praise him!
    I will praise him all my days.
    I will sing while I have being;
    I will sing to God my praise!
    Put no confidence in princes,
    mortal men who cannot save.
    All their plans will come to nothing
    when they perish in the grave.
  2. O how blest the man who trusts in
    Jacob’s God to be his aid.
    O how blest the one whose hope upon
    the LORD his God is stayed,
    he who made the earth and heaven
    and the seas, with all their store;
    he who keeps his word forever,
    he is faithful evermore.
  3. He will always render justice
    for the sake of those oppressed.
    He gives food to those who hunger,
    satisfies their emptiness.
    God releases all the pris’ners,
    to the blind the LORD gives sight.
    He lifts up those bowed in anguish
    and relieves them from their plight.
  4. How the LORD loves all the righteous,
    and the alien defends,
    helps the orphan and the widow,
    judgment on the wicked sends.
    God the LORD will reign forever;
    Zion’s God forevermore
    reigns through ev’ry generation.
    Hallelujah! Praise the LORD!
