R. He is happy who is helped by Jacob’s God.
1. My soul, give praise to the Lord;
I will praise the Lord all my days,
make music to my God while I live. (R.)
2. Put no trust in princes,
in mortal men in whom there is no help.
Take their breath, they return to clay
and their plans that day come to nothing. (R.)
3. He is happy who is helped by Jacob’s God,
whose hope is in the Lord his God,
who alone made heaven and earth,
the seas and all they contain. (R.)
I call you friends, says the Lord,
because I have made known to you
everything I have learnt from my Father.
