Walk Out of Chains and Jail

My soul and I will praise the Lord as long as we have breath.

We’ll sing the mighty power of God until our day of death.

Not trusting presidents or those whose plans will come to naught,

We’ll place our hope in God who made the heavens and whatnot.

God’s promise is unbreakable, God’s justice doesn’t fail.

The poor are fed and prisoners walk out of chains and jail.

The blind receive their sight, the bowed-down widows helped to stand.

The orphan and the stranger find protection in the land.
