View Lyrics
While I live, my soul shall praise Him;
To my God, my heart shall sing!
Hope in none who cannot save thee:
Sons of men, nor prince, nor king.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
O my soul, let praises ring!

Every man, his life escaping,
Breathes his last to end in death.
Plots and plans, all now forsaken,
With him buried in the depth.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Praise the Lord with every breath!

Blest, whose help is God of Jacob;
All whose hope is in the Lord.
He of earth and heav'n the Maker;
Sea and land, all by His word.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Praise the ever faithful Lord!

Judging rightly for the helpless;
Feeds the hungry, pris'ner freed!
Orphan, widow, lowly, righteous,
Stranger welcomed, blinded see!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Praise the Lord for His decree!

He shall end each wrong endeavor;
Though the wicked try in vain.
God of Zion, rule forever;
O'er each generation reign!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Praise the Lord, my soul again!
