Lauda, anima, mea. Psal. cxlvi.
PRAYSE the lorde, (o my soule), while I live wil I prayse the lorde : yea, as long as I have any being, I wil sing prayses unto my god.

The lorde looceth men out of prieson, the lorde geveth sight to the blynde.
The lorde helpeth them up that are fallen, the lorde careth for the righteous.
The lord careth for the straungers, he defendeth the fatherlesse and widdowe : as for the waye of the ungodly, he turneth it upsyde downe.

Glory to the father, &c.
As it was in the beginning, &c.
