Keep the Poor in Mind

All who keep the poor in mind,

whom God saves and keeps alive,

are called happy in the land,

and in righteousness will stand.

—–

Though I sinned against the Lord,

God has grace, and keeps the word.

Friend and enemy wish ill,

God upholds me. Always will.

—–

Raise me up, God, make me stand.

I won’t die by haters’ hand.

You’re for-ev-er by my side,

or long a-go I’d have died.

—–

Blest be God, cre-a-tion’s Lord

who made all things by a word.

Ev-er-last-ing to the end,

we will sing the great A-Men
