for they cannot save.
When their spirit departs, they return to dust,
and on that day all their thoughts and plans perish.Sing: (O my soul, praise Him, for He is thy health and salvation!)
whose hope is in the Lord their God,
who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them;
and who keeps truth forever;
who executes justice for the oppressed;
who gives food to the hungry.
The Lord sets prisoners free;
the Lord gives sight to the blind.
The Lord lifts up those who are bowed down;
the Lord loves the righteous.
The Lord watches over the foreigner and upholds the orphan and the widow,
but the way of the wicked he overthrows.your God, O Zion, for all generations.
Praise the Lord!Sing: (All ye who hear, now to His temple draw near; Praise Him in glad adoration.)
