Shout Praises to the Lord
1 Shout praises to the Lord!
With all that I am, I will shout his praises.
2 I will sing and praise the Lord God as long as I live.
3 You can't depend on anyone, not even a great leader.
4 Once they die and are buried, that will be the end
of all their plans.
5 The Lord God of Jacob blesses everyone who trusts him
and depends on him.
6 God made heaven and earth; he created the sea and everything else. God always keeps his word.
7 He gives justice to the poor and food to the hungry.
The Lord sets prisoners free 8 and heals blind eyes.
He gives a helping hand to everyone who falls.
The Lord loves good people 9 and looks after strangers.
He defends the rights of orphans and widows, but destroys the wicked.
10 The Lord God of Zion will rule forever!
Shout praises to the Lord!
