  Cry of the Poor
Em D Bm Em C D Em
(Am G Em Am F G Am)

The Lord hears the cry of the poor.
Blessed be the Lord.

C D Em C / G Am Bm / F Bm Em C / Am Bm Em
(F G Am F / C Dm Em / B Em Am F / Dm Em Am)

I will bless the Lord at all times.
His praise every 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 every in my mouth;
Ev'ry face brightened in His light
For he hears the cry of the poor.

All my favorite hymns. Most of them are from before the Reformation.
