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.
