Your Sunday Hymn: The Cry of the Poor

A very nice acoustic version of John Foley’s Cry of the Poor (Psalm 34)

Lyrics:

Refrain: The Lord hears the cry of the poor;
Blessed be the Lord.

1. I will bless the Lord at all times,
His praise ever in my mouth;
Let my soul glory in the Lord,
For He hears the cry of the poor.

2, Let the lowly hear and be glad:
The Lord listens to their pleas;
And to hearts broken, God is near,
For He hears the cry of the poor.

3. Every spirit crushed, God will save,
Will be ransom for their lives,
Will be safe shelter for their fears,
And will hear the cry of the poor.

4. We proclaim you greatness, O God;
Your praise ever in our mouth;
Ev’ry face brightened in your light;
For you hear the cry of the poor.
