Litany of Praise: Psalm 146


Happy are those who have the God of Israel as their helper,
whose hope is in the Lord their God.
He is the one who made heaven and earth,
the sea, and everything in them.
He is the one who keeps every promise forever,
who gives justice to the oppressed
and food to the hungry.
The Lord frees the prisoners.
The Lord opens the eyes of the blind.
The Lord lifts the burdens of those bent beneath their loads.
The Lord loves the righteous.
The Lord protects the foreigners among us.
He care for the orphans and widows,
but he frustrates the plans of the wicked.
Happy are those who have the God of Israel as their helper,
whose hope is in the Lord their God.

~ Psalm 146:5-9
