1 Praise ye the Lord, His praise proclaim,
And, O my soul, bless thou His Name;
Yea, I will sound His praise abroad
And ever bless the Lord, my God.
2 Trust not in man who soon must die,
But on the living god rely;
Most blest the man whose help is He
That made the heaven and earth and sea.
3 His truth unchanged shall ever stand,
He saves from strong oppression's hand,
In Him the sad a helper find,
He feeds the poor and heals the blind.
4 Thy God shall reign for evermore,
Praise Him, O Zion, and adore;
The Lord is heaven's eternal King,
To Him all praise and honor bring.
