1Alleluia, of Aggeus and Zacharias.
2Praise the Lord, O my soul, in my life I will praise the Lord: I will sing to my God as long as I shall be. Put not your trust in princes: 3in the children of men, in whom there is no salvation. 4His spirit shall go forth, and he shall return into his earth: in that day all their thoughts shall perish. 5Blessed is he who hath the God of Jacob for his helper, whose hope is in the Lord his God: 6who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all things that are in them. 7Who keepeth truth for ever: who executeth judgment for them that suffer wrong: who giveth food to the hungry. The Lord looseth them that are fettered: 8the Lord enlighteneth the blind. The Lord lifteth up them that are cast down: the Lord loveth the just. 9The Lord keepeth the strangers, he will support the fatherless and the widow: and the ways of sinners he will destroy. 10The Lord shall reign for ever: thy God, O Sion, unto generation and generation.
