This is a poetic 'revisiting' of Psalm 146. You may want to read an original translation first. You could use this as a prayer-shout or a call to worship.


Extract from the psalm:

Praise the Lord!
We will praise the LORD as long as we live;
we will sing praises to our God every day.
Do not put your trust merely in mortals,
in whom there is no everlasting help.
Instead, trust in the Lord and rely on his wisdom and understanding.

Happy are those whose help is in the God of Jacob,
whose hope is in the Lord of the earth.
Happy are those who know they need God, who realise their own limits.
Those who look to the creator of sea and sky,
the architect of day and night,
the designer of people and planets.
Our God is with the the oppressed and the hungry,
and this same Lord calls us to join him in setting the prisoners free,
reaching out to those who sit in chains and darkness.

The Lord opens the eyes of the blind,
he enables us to see what was once concealed.
He lifts up those who are bowed down;
those who are oppressed and marginalised.
The Lord loves the righteous,
those who find their redemption in the Man from Nazareth.
He cares for the stranger and the refugee,
he upholds the orphan and the widow.
But he is not impressed with those who merely seek wealth and power.
The rich he sends away empty.
The way of the wicked he brings to ruin...
