1 The Lord praise: praise (my soul) the Lord.
So long as I do live
2 I’ll praise the Lord; while that I am,
praise to my God I’ll give.
3 Trust not in Princes; nor man’s son
who can no succour send.
4 His breath go’s forth, to’s earth he turns,
his thoughts that day do end.
5 Happy is he that hath the God
of Jacob for his aid:
whose expectation is upon
Jehovah his God stay’d.
6 Which heav’n, earth, sea, all in them made:
truth keeps for evermore:
7 Which for th’ oppressed judgment doth,
gives to the hungry store,
8 The Lord doth loose the prisoners.
the Lord ope’s eyes of blind,
the Lord doth raise the bowed down;
the Lord to th’ just is kind.
9 The Lord saves strangers, and relieves
the orphan, and widow:
but he of them that wicked are
the way doth overthrow.
10 The Lord shall reign for evermore,
thy God, o Sion, he
to generations all shall reign:
o praise Jehovah ye.
