1 Praise the Lord.
I will praise the Lord.
2 I will praise the Lord all my life.
I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.
3 Don’t put your trust in human leaders.
Don’t trust in people who can’t save you.
4 When they die, they return to the ground.
On that day their plans come to nothing.
5 Blessed are those who depend on the God of Jacob for help.
Blessed are those who put their hope in the Lord their God.
6 He is the Maker of heaven and earth and the ocean.
He made everything in them.
He remains faithful forever.
7 He stands up for those who are treated badly.
He gives food to hungry people.
The Lord sets prisoners free.
8 The Lord gives sight to those who are blind.
The Lord lifts up those who feel helpless.
The Lord loves those who do what is right.
9 The Lord watches over the outsiders who live in our land.
He takes good care of children whose fathers have died.
He also takes good care of widows.
But he causes evil people to fail
in everything they do.
10 The Lord rules forever.
The God of Zion will rule for all time to come.
Praise the Lord.
Tendereza Mukama ggwe emmeeme yange!
2 Nnaatenderezanga Mukama ennaku zonna ez’obulamu bwange;
nnaayimbanga okutendereza Katonda wange nga nkyali mulamu.
3 Teweesiganga bafuzi,
wadde abantu obuntu omutali buyambi.
4 Kubanga bafa ne bakka emagombe;
ne ku lunaku olwo lwennyini, byonna bye baba bateeseteese ne bifa.
5 Yeesiimye oyo ayambibwa Katonda wa Yakobo;
ng’essuubi lye liri mu Mukama Katonda we,
6 eyakola eggulu n’ensi
n’ennyanja ne byonna ebirimu,
era omwesigwa emirembe gyonna.
7 Atereeza ensonga z’abajoogebwa mu bwenkanya,
n’abalumwa enjala abawa ebyokulya.
Mukama asumulula abasibe.
8 Mukama azibula amaaso ga bamuzibe,
era awanirira abazitoowereddwa.
Mukama ayagala abatuukirivu.
9 Mukama alabirira bannamawanga,
era ayamba bamulekwa ne bannamwandu;
naye ekkubo ly’abakola ebibi alifaafaaganya.
10 Mukama anaafuganga emirembe gyonna,
Katonda wo, Ayi Sayuuni, anaabanga Katonda wa buli mulembe.
