In Praise of God the Saviour
1Praise the LORD!
Praise the LORD, my soul!
2I will praise him as long as I live;
I will sing to my God all my life.
3Don't put your trust in human leaders;
no human being can save you.
4When they die, they return to the dust;
on that day all their plans come to an end.
5Happy are those who have the God of Jacob to help them
and who depend on the LORD their God,
6 # Acts 4.24; 14.15 the Creator of heaven, earth, and sea,
and all that is in them.
He always keeps his promises;
7he judges in favour of the oppressed
and gives food to the hungry.
The LORD sets prisoners free
8and gives sight to the blind.
He lifts those who have fallen;
he loves his righteous people.
9He protects the strangers who live in our land;
he helps widows and orphans,
but takes the wicked to their ruin.
10The LORD is king for ever.
Your God, O Zion, will reign for all time.
Praise the LORD!
