Psalm 146

Julie Tennent

1Praise the Lord, O my soul, praise Him; to the Lord your praises give;
2I will praise Him my whole life; sing praise to God long as I live.
3Do not put your trust in princes; in mere man who cannot save;
4When they die, their plans are nothing; they descend into the grave.

5Blessed is the one whose help is Jacob’s God – how bless’d is he!
Blessed is the one whose hope is in the Lord perpetually;
6Who’s the Maker of the heavens, Maker of the earth and sea;
Maker of all that does fill them; keeping faith eternally.

7He upholds the cause of those who are oppressed – to them is kind;
He gives food unto the hungry; and gives sight unto the blind.
8The Lord sets the prisoners free, and lifts up those who are bowed down;
The Lord loves the righteous ones, and does their lives with glory crown.

9The Lord watches o’er the strangers; and sustains the fatherless;
Helps the widows, but He frustrates wicked ones who would oppress.
10The Lord God will reign forever; your God, Zion, evermore;
He reigns for all generations; Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!
