Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God,
Who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them;
Who keeps truth forever,
Who executes justice for the oppressed,
Who gives food to the hungry.
The Lord gives freedom to the prisoners.
The Lord opens the eyes of the blind; the Lord raises those who are bowed down;
the Lord loves the righteous.
The Lord watches over the strangers;
He relieves the fatherless and widow; but the way of the wicked He turns upside down.
The Lord shall reign forever -
Your God, O Zion, to all generations.
Praise the Lord!
