Tune: Aurelia 76 76 D

  1. O praise the Lord, O praise him!
       As long as I shall live
    I will declare God’s praises
       for blessings he shall give.
    Do not rely on princes,
       for humans cannot save;
    for when their breath is ended,
       their plans go to the grave.
  2. Blessèd are those whose future
       is found in Jacob’s Lord,
    Creator God is with them
       and justice their reward.
    He’s with them in oppression
       and sets the pris’ner free.
    God gives food to the hungry
       and makes the blind ones see.
  3. God lifts the poor in spirit
       and those who are alone,
    the broken and forgotten,
       God calls them all his own.
    Your God shall reign forever.
       Rejoice, Jerusalem!
    And let all generations
       proclaim the great Amen!
