Praise ye the LORD! Praise the LORD, O my soul!
While I live will I praise the LORD; I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.
Put not your trust in princes, nor in a son of man in whom there is no help.
His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.
Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God,
who made heaven and earth, the sea and all that therein is, who keepeth truth for ever;
who executeth judgment for the oppressed, who giveth food to the hungry; the LORD looseth the prisoners.
The LORD openeth the eyes of the blind; the LORD raiseth them that are bowed down; the LORD loveth the righteous.
The LORD preserveth the strangers, He relieveth the fatherless and the widow; but the way of the wicked He turneth upside down.
The LORD shall reign for ever, even Thy God, O Zion, unto all generations. Praise ye the LORD!
