  1  Blessed is the nation God is for,
        and the people He has chosen;
     For God looks down from heav'n above, 
        and from there beholds all nations.
     From His place above he looks on all;
        He sees their every doing;
     He sees their works, He sees their sin;
        He beholds all of those who fear him.

  2  O you righteous in the Lord, rejoice,
        Songs of praise befit the upright;
     Play skillfully upon the strings, 
        sing to Him a joyful new song.
     For the Word of God is right and just,
        all His works are true and faithful;
     His loving kindness fills the earth,
        and He loves righteousness and justice.

  3  by the word of God the heav'ns were made
        Waters of the sea He gathered;
     In storage places laid the deeps,
        let all the earth revere Him.
     Let the people stand in awe of Him,
        for He spoke and earth existed;
     When He commanded it stood fast;
        by His word were the heav'ns created.

  4  Kings will not be saved by armies great,
        nor a mighty man delivered;
     Not one is saved by his own strength,
        nor by some other power.
     But the eyes of God are on the just,
        those who fear and worship Him;
     Who wait for Him, who hope for Him,
        those who trust in the God is Isr'el.
