146 1Hallelujah! O my soul, praise God! 2All my life long I’ll praise God, singing songs to my God as long as I live. 3Don’t put your life in the hands of experts who know nothing of life, of salvation life. 4Mere humans don’t have what it takes; when they die, their projects die with them. 5Instead, get help from the God of Jacob, put your hope in God and know real blessing! 6God made sky and soil, sea and all the fish in it. He always does what he says— 7he defends the wronged, he feeds the hungry. God frees prisoners— 8he gives sight to the blind, he lifts up the fallen. 9God loves good people, protects strangers, takes the side of orphans and widows, but makes short work of the wicked. 10God’s in charge—always. Zion’s God is God for good! Hallelujah!
