|Jehovah an Abundant Helper|
| ||PRAISE 1 ye Jehovah.|
Praise Jehovah, O my soul.
| ||While I live will I praise Jehovah:|
I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.
| ||Put not your trust in princes,|
Nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.
| ||His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth;|
In that very day his thoughts 2 perish.
| ||Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help,|
Whose hope is in Jehovah his God:
| ||Who made heaven and earth,|
The sea, and all that in them is;
Who keepeth truth for ever;
| ||Who executeth justice for the oppressed;|
Who giveth food to the hungry.
Jehovah looseth the prisoners
| ||Jehovah openeth the eyes of the blind;|
Jehovah raiseth up them that are bowed down;
Jehovah loveth the righteous;
| ||Jehovah preserveth the sojourners;|
He upholdeth the fatherless and widow;
But the way of the wicked he turneth 3 upside down.
| ||Jehovah will reign for ever,|
Thy God, O Zion, unto all generations.
Praise 4 ye Jehovah.
