(A)Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,
    whose (B)hope is in the Lord his God,
(C)who made heaven and earth,
    the sea, and all that is in them,
(D)who keeps faith forever;
    (E)who executes justice for the oppressed,
    (F)who gives food to the hungry.

(G)The Lord sets the prisoners free;
    (H)the Lord opens the eyes of the blind.
(I)The Lord lifts up those who are bowed down;
    (J)the Lord loves the righteous.
(K)The Lord watches over the sojourners;
    (L)he upholds the widow and the fatherless,
    but (M)the way of the wicked he brings to ruin.
