My soul, give praise

Psalm 145

  • Refrain:
    My give praise,
    give praise to God, alleluia!
    My give praise,
    give praise to God, alleluia!
  1. It is the Lord who keeps faith for ever,
    it is the Lord who's just to the oppressed;
    it is God who gives food to the hungry heart,
    the Lord who sets prisoners free.
  2. It is the Lord who givessight to the blind,
    who raises up those who're bowed down;
    the Lord protects the stranger,
    upholds the widow and child.
  3. It is the Lord who loves the just
    and turns against wicked ones;
    the Lord will reign for ever,
    from age to age, Amen!
