Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul :
while I live I will praise the Lord;
While I have any being :
I will sing praises to my God.
Put not your trust in princes :
nor in the sons of men, who cannot save.
For when their breath goes from them,
they return again to the earth :
and on that day all their thoughts perish.
Blessed is the man whose help is the God of Jacob :
whose hope is in the Lord his God,
The God who made heaven and earth :
the sea, and all that is in them,
Who keeps faith for ever :
who deals justice to those that are oppressed.
The Lord gives food to the hungry :
and sets the captives free.
The Lord gives sight to the blind :
the Lord lifts up those that are bowed down.
The Lord loves the righteous :
the Lord cares for the stranger in the land.
He upholds the widow and the fatherless :
as for the way of the wicked, he turns it upside down.
The Lord shall be king for ever :
your God, O Zion, shall reign through all generations.
Praise the Lord.
