1 Praise the LORD!
Praise the LORD, my soul.
2 While I live, I will praise the LORD.
I will sing praises to my God as long as I exist.
3 Don’t put your trust in princes,
in a son of man in whom there is no help.
4 His spirit departs, and he returns to the earth.
In that very day, his thoughts perish.
5 Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help,
whose hope is in the LORD, his God,
6 who made heaven and earth,
the sea, and all that is in them;
who keeps truth forever;
7 who executes justice for the oppressed;
who gives food to the hungry.
The LORD frees the prisoners.
8 The LORD opens the eyes of the blind.
The LORD raises up those who are bowed down.
The LORD loves the righteous.
9 The LORD preserves the foreigners.
He upholds the fatherless and widow,
but he turns the way of the wicked upside down.
10 The LORD will reign forever;
your God, O Zion, to all generations.
Praise the LORD!
