1 Praise the LORD, my soul! O praise him! 

2 I'll extol him all my days

While I live to God my Saviour 

from my heart I will sing praise. 

 

3 Do not put your trust in princes 

mortal men who cannot save. 

4 All their plans will come to nothing

when they perish in the grave. 

 

5 Blessèd is the one who truly

looks for help to Jacob's God; 

Blessèd is the one who places 

all his hope upon the LORD - 

 

6 He who made the earth and heaven 

and the seas, with all their store; 

He who keeps his every promise, 

who is faithful evermore.  

7 He delivers from oppression

and relieves the hungry's plight. 

He releases those in prison; 

8 to the blind the LORD gives sight. 

Those who are bowed down he raises. 

God delights in righteousness. 

9 He protects and cares for strangers, 

widows and the fatherless. 

He frustrates the wicked's purpose. 

10 So the LORD through endless days 

Reigns to every generation . 

Raise your God, O Zion, praise!
