The Lord an Abundant Helper.

(a)Praise (b)the Lord!
(A)Praise the Lord, O my soul!
I will praise the Lord (B)while I live;
I will (C)sing praises to my God while I have my being.
(D)Do not trust in princes,
In (c)mortal (E)man, in whom there is (F)no salvation.
His (G)spirit departs, he (H)returns to (d)the earth;
In that very day his (I)thoughts perish.
How (J)blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,
Whose (K)hope is in the Lord his God,
Who (L)made heaven and earth,
The (M)sea and all that is in them;
Who (N)keeps (e)faith forever;
Who (O)executes justice for the oppressed;
Who (P)gives food to the hungry.
The Lord (Q)sets the prisoners free.
The Lord (R)opens the eyes of the blind;
The Lord (S)raises up those who are bowed down;
The Lord (T)loves the righteous;
The Lord (f)(U)protects the (g)strangers;
He (h)(V)supports the fatherless and the widow,
But He (i)thwarts (W)the way of the wicked.
The Lord will (X)reign forever,
Your God, O Zion, to all generations.
(j)Praise (k)the Lord!
