21The Lord frees the oppressed. The extent of human anguish the hungry, the prisoners, the op pressed has reached such a point that the powerful of this earth alone are incapable of finding a solution for it. Only God can give the world justice, peace, and hope. He has sent me to give Good News to the poor, to announce freedom to prisoners
1 Praise the Lord, my soul!
2 I will sing to the Lord all my life
2 I will sing praise to God while I live.
3 Do not put your trust in princes,
3 in a great one who cannot save.
4 Not sooner his spirit has left,
4 that he goes back to the earth
4 on that very day, any plan comes to nothing.
5 Blessed are they whose help is the God of Jacob,
