Psalm 145: Justice-maker

My soul praises You while I'm in life.
   I sing, while I yet have being.
      For You are my help and my hope is in You.


You, Who made heaven and earth, the sea and all within,
  Who’s the guardian of truth, making justice for those oppressed.
    You Who gives bread to the hungry, and loosens those bound,
       Who opens the eyes of the blind and raises up those bowed down.
 It is You Who love those who do justice, are the guardian of strangers,
    and who uphold the orphan and the widow.
