Psalm 41:1-3

1 Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the Lord will deliver him in time of trouble.

The Lord will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies.

The Lord will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness.


Blessed is he that considereth the poor (c. 1688) from Harmonia Sacra, no. 1, composed by Henry Purcell (1659-1695)

Blessed is he that considereth the poor
