PCXLVI. Sing HALLELUJAH! praise the LORD

1 Sing HALLELUJAH! praise the LORD,
2 I'll praise JEHOVAH all my days:
O thou my soul! I'll to my God,
While I a being have, sing praise.
3 Trust not in princes, nor mens sons,
Who can no succour to you send;
4 Their breath expires, to earth they turn,
And all their thoughts that moment end.

5 O bless'd is he who hath the God
Of Jacob for his constant aid;
Whose lively confidence upon,
The LORD his God is firmly stay'd.
6 Who heav'n, earht, sea, all in them made;
Who ever doth his truth make good;
7 Who for th' oppressed judgment does;
And kindly gives the hungry food.

8 JEHOVAH sets the pris'ners free,
JEHOVAH sight gives to the blind,
The LORD lifts up the bowed down,
The LORD is to the righteous kind.
9 The LORD the strangers doth preserve,
The widows and the orphans raise;
But He of them who wicked are
Intirely overthrows the ways.

10 The LORD shall reign for evermore;
Thy mighty God, O Zion, He
To generations all shall reign:
Therefore sing HALLELUJAH, ye
