Psalm 145: Justice-maker

Halleluyah! All my soul praises You while I'm in life.
I sing while I yet have my being.

For You are my help,
and my hope is in You.

You, Who made heaven and earth,
the sea and all within,
Who is the guardian of truth,
making justice for those oppressed!

You Who gives bread to the hungry,
loosens those bound,
opens the eyes of the blind,
and raises up those bowed down!

You Who loves those who do justice,
is the guardian of strangers,
upholds the orphan and the widow,
and makes the way of wrong-doers crooked!
