Lobet den Herren, der zu Zion wohnet
verkündiget unter den Leuten sein Tun,
denn er gedenket und fraget nach ihrem Blut
er vergisset nicht des Schreiens der Armen.

Sing praises to the Lord which dwelleth in Zion
declare among the people his doings.
When he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them
he forgetteth not the cry of the humble.
