The Cry of the Poor

John Foley, SJ

Ref:
The Lord hears the cry of the poor. Blessed be the Lord!

I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise ever in my mouth,
Let my soul glory in the Lord, for He hears the cry of the poor.

Let the lowly hear and be glad: the Lord listens to their pleas,
And to hearts broken He is near; for He hears the cry of the poor.

Ev'ry spirit crushed He will save, will be ransom for their lives;
Will be safe shelter for their fears, for He hears the cry of the poor.

We proclaim the greatness of God, His praise ever in our mouth;

Ev'ry face brightened in His light, for He hears the cry of the poor.
