Psalm 145: Blessed Are the Poor in Spirit [4th OT A]

Rebecca De La Torre

Lyrics / Letras

Blessed are the poor in spirit; the kingdom of heaven is theirs!

Verse 1:

The LORD keeps faith forever,
secures justice for the oppressed,
gives food to the hungry.
The LORD sets captives free.

Verse 2:

The LORD gives sight to the blind;
the LORD raises up those who were bowed down;
The LORD loves the just;
the LORD protects strangers.

Verse 3:

The fatherless and the widow the LORD sustains,
but the way of the wicked he thwarts.
The LORD shall reign forever;
your God, O Zion, through all generations. Alleluia.
