Hallelujah! Praise the Lord, my soul! I will praise him as long as I live. I will sing praises to God as long as I exist. Don't put your trust in princes, but rely on him who has the God of Jacob for his help. The Lord made heaven and earth, the sea and all that is in them. He keeps the truth. He executes justice for the oppressed. He gives bread to the hungry and frees the prisoners. He opens the eyes of the blind, raises up those who are bowed down, helps the fatherless and the widow. The way of the wicked he turns upside down. The Lord is king forever, Hallelujah!
