5 Who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that there'in | is : who keepeth' his promise' for ever ;

7 The Lord looseth men out of prison : the Lord giveth' sight to the blind.

8 The Lord helpeth them that are | fallen : the Lord | car'eth for the righteous.

9 The Lord careth for the strangers ; he defendeth the / fatherless' and widow : as for the way

of the ungodly, he | turneth' it , up'side | down.

10 The Lord thy God, O Sion, shall be King for ev'er|more : and throughout all I ge'ne|rations.
