HE - Underlined words are honorific indices ("indexes"), using the FT of the upturned palm to indicate who is being honored.

Lyrics (Psalm 146:7, 8-9, 9-10):
Response: Praise the Lord, my soul! or: Alleluia.
The God of Jacob keeps faith forever,
secures justice for the oppressed,
gives food to the hungry.
The LORD sets captives free. Response
The LORD gives sight to the blind;
the LORD raises up those who were bowed down.
The LORD loves the just;
the LORD protects strangers. Response
The fatherless and the widow the LORD sustains,
but the way of the wicked he thwarts.
The LORD shall reign forever;
your God, O Zion, through all generations. Alleluia. Response
