Theme: Psalms

    I will praise my God all the days of my life.

5.  Happy are those whose help is the God òf Jacob,
    whose hope is in the Lord théir God,
6.  who made heaven ànd earth,
    the sea, and all that is ín them;

7.  who keeps faith fòrever;
    who executes justice for the òppressed;
    who gives food to thé hungry. (R)

8.  The Lord sets the prisonèrs free;
    the Lord opens the eyes of thé blind.
    The Lord lifts up those who are bòwed down;
    the Lord loves thé righteous.

9.  The Lord watches over thè strangers,
    He upholds the widow ànd the orphan;
    but the way of the wicked He brings tó ruin. (R)

10. The Lord will reign fòrever,
    your God, O Zion, to all genèrations.
    Praise thé Lord! (R)
