(145-1) <Alleluia, of Aggeus and Zacharias.> (145-2) Praise the Lord, O my soul,
(145-2) in my life I will praise the Lord: I will sing to my God as long as I shall be. Put not your trust in princes:
(145-3) In the children of men, in whom there is no salvation.
(145-4) His spirit shall go forth, and he shall return into his earth: in that day all their thoughts shall perish.
(145-5) Blessed is he who hath the God of Jacob for his helper, whose hope is in the Lord his God:
(145-6) Who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all things that are in them.
(145-7) Who keepeth truth for ever: who executeth judgment for them that suffer wrong: who giveth food to the hungry. The Lord looseth them that are fettered:
(145-8) The Lord enlighteneth the blind. The Lord lifteth up them that are cast down: the Lord loveth the just.
(145-9) The Lord keepeth the strangers, he will support the fatherless and the widow: and the ways of sinners he will destroy.
(145-10) The Lord shall reign for ever: thy God, O Sion, unto generation and generation.
