Praise the Lord who heals...

Psalm 147

  • Refrain:
    Praise the Lord, who heals the broken hearted,
    Praise the Lord, for God is good.
  1. Sing praise to God for God is gracious,
    it is right to sing God praise.
    The Lord rebuilds Jerusalem,
    dispersed of Israel gather.
  2. God heals the heasrts that have been broken,
    and God binds up their wounds.
    God tells the numbers of the stars,
    God calls each one by name.
  3. Great is our God, mighty in power,
    the Lord's wisdom knows no end.
    God raises up those who're bowed down,
    the wicked cast away.
