Original text and translations
I will sing unto the Lord as long as I live:
I will praise my God while I have my being.
And so shall my words please him:
my joy shall be in the Lord.
As for sinners, they shall be consumed out of the earth,
and the ungodly shall come to an end:
but praise ye the Lord, O my soul, praise the Lord.
