1 {Praise the Everlasting} Praise the LORD, O my soul. 2 While I live will I praise the LORD; yea, as long as I have any being, I will sing praises unto my God.
3 O put not your trust in princes, nor in any child of man, for there is no help in them. 4 For when the breath of man goeth forth, he shall turn again to his earth, and so all his thoughts perish.
5 Blessed is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, and whose hope is in the LORD his God, 6 who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that therein is; who keepeth his promise forever; 7 who helpeth them to right that suffer wrong; who feedeth the hungry. The LORD looseth men out of prison; 8 the LORD giveth sight to the blind. The LORD helpeth them up that are fallen; the LORD loveth the righteous. 9 The LORD careth for the strangers; he defendeth the fatherless and widow. As for the way of the ungodly, he turneth it upside down.
10 The LORD thy God, O Zion, is king for evermore, and throughout all generations. Praise the everlasting! Hallelujah!
