Psalm 103

Ps 103Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And give it all you’ve got
Bless the Lord, O my soul
Let His blessings fill your thoughts.

All iniquities forgives
Heals your body, makes you live
Lifts you up when you are down
With His love your head doth crown
Fills with good that satisfies
Strength of eagle’s wings, you fly.

Vindicates all those oppressed
Gives His children what is best
Always merciful and kind
Slow to wrath with grace combined
Does not chide or hold a grudge
Not revengeful, won’t misjudge.

Mercy high as heav’ns above
All who fear Him know His love
Far as east is from the west
All our sins from us divests
Like a gentle, caring dad
Shows compassion, is not mad.

We are dust, He knows our frame
For our weakness does not blame
Like a flower of the fields
To the wind our glory yields
But His steadfast love is sure
And forever will endure.

All who honor Him below
Steadfast love from Him will know
Children’s children will be blest
And inherit righteousness
Richest blessings He will heap
On all who His cov’nant keep.

Adonai rules from His throne
As the king He shall be known
Mighty angels all obey
Bless the Lord without delay
All His hosts who do His will
Bless Him, all His words fulfill.

Bless the Lord, O my soul
All creation join in, too
Bless the Lord, O my soul
Such great things He’s done for you.
