Psalm 146: Praise God. The Lord praise, O my soul
Meter: C.M. (8,6,8,6)
1 Praise God. The Lord praise, O my soul. 2 I’ll praise God while I live; While I have being to my God in songs I’ll praises give.
3 Trust not in princes, nor man’s son, in whom there is no stay: 4 His breath departs, to’s earth he turns; that day his thoughts decay.
5 O happy is that man and blest, whom Jacob’s God doth aid; Whose hope upon the Lord doth rest, and on his God is stay’d:
6 Who made the earth and heavens high, who made the swelling deep, And all that is within the same; who truth doth ever keep:
7 Who righteous judgment executes for those oppress’d that be, Who to the hungry giveth food; God sets the pris’ners free.
8 The Lord doth give the blind their sight, the bowed down doth raise: The Lord doth dearly love all those that walk in upright ways.
9 The stranger’s shield, the widow’s stay, the orphan’s help, is he: But yet by him the wicked’s way turn’d upside down shall be.
10 The Lord shall reign for evermore: thy God, O Sion, he Reigns to all generations. Praise to the Lord give ye.
