Blessed are we who place our trust in God!
Our God is the Maker of the heavens, the earth, the sea,
and everything that lives within them;
Our God keeps every promise,
and remains faithful forever.
Our God gives justice to those who are oppressed,
and food to those who are starving.
Our God frees the prisoners,
opens the eyes of the blind,
and lifts the burdens of those who are overwhelmed.
Our God cherishes those who do what is right,
protects the immigrants,
cares for the orphans and widows,
but frustrates the plans of the wicked.
Our God reigns—today, tomorrow and forever.
– Christine Longhurst, on behalf of the Canadian Foodgrains Bank
