An election night Psalm.
1 Hallelujah! My soul, praise the LORD. 2 I will praise the LORD all my life; I will sing to my God as long as I live.
3 Do not trust in nobles, in man, who cannot save. 4 When his breath leaves him, he returns to the ground; on that day his plans die.
5 Happy is the one whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD his God, 6 the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea and everything in them. He remains faithful forever, 7 executing justice for the exploited and giving food to the hungry. The LORD frees prisoners.
8 The LORD opens the eyes of the blind. The LORD raises up those who are oppressed. The LORD loves the righteous.
9 The LORD protects foreigners and helps the fatherless and the widow, but He frustrates the ways of the wicked.
10 The LORD reigns forever; Zion, your God reigns for all generations.
