Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, my soul!
For as long as I shall live,
I will sing unto the Lord my God
for the blessings that He gives.
1. Do not put your trust in princes,
for mortal man can't save.
When they die, their spirit passes:
all their plans lie in the grave.
2. Blessed are the sons of Jacob
whose hope is in the Lord.
Our Creator God is with them:
faithfulness is their reward.
3. God is with us in oppression.
God sets the prisoner free.
God gives food to the hungry.
God makes the blind to see.
4. God is with the low in spirit,
with those who are alone.
God is with the righteous people
for the just God calls His own.
