L. Mason

1. Hallelujah! Praise Jehovah,
O my soul, Jehovah praise;
While I live I'll praise Jehovah,
To my God sing all my days.
Put no trust in early, princes,
Nor man's son whose help is vain.

CHORUS.
Soon his breath and tho'ts forsake him,
Back to dust he turns again.

2. Praise the Lord who made the heaven,
Earth and sea, and all therein;
Who will keep His truth forever,
Rights of all oppressed maintain.
He gives food to those that hunger,
To the blind restoreth sight;
He gives food to those that hunger,
To the blind restoreth sight;
He gives freedom to the pris'ner.
Make the bowed to stand upright.

Chorus.

3. He the righteous loves, and safely
Keeps the stranger; He's a stay
To keep the fatherless and widow,
But subverts the sinner's way.
Evermore Jehovah reigneth,
Through all ages He is King.
Even He, thy God, O Zion.
To Jehovah praise and sing.

Chorus.
