Bless the Lord – Psalm 103

1Bless the LORD, O my soul;
All in me bless his holy name.
2Bless the LORD, O my soul;
Don’t forget all his benefits:

3Who forgives all of your sins,
Who heals all your sicknesses,
4Who redeems your life from the pit,
Who crowns you with care and love,
5Satisfies your life with good,
Like an eagle your youth renews.

6The LORD works righteousness,
Justice for all who are oppressed.
7His own ways, his great deeds,
He showed Moses and Israel’s sons.

8Gracious is the LORD and kind,
Slow to anger, full of love;
9He will not continue to strive.
Anger he will not preserve,
10Or give what our sins deserve;
He won’t pay us back for our crimes.

11For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
So great is his steadfast love to those who fear him.
12And as far as the east is distant from the west,
So far does he take our sins away from us.
13As the love that a father sets upon his children,
So the love of the LORD upon all those who fear him.
14For he knows our frame; He remembers we are dust.

15Like the grass are man’s days;
He grows like flowers of the field.
16When the wind blows on him,
His place knows him no more; he’s gone.

17But for those who fear the LORD,
Evermore to evermore,
He will show his steadfast love,
Righteousness to sons of sons,
18Those who keep his covenant,
Who remember to do his word.

19For the LORD in the heavens has established his throne,
And the LORD, his own kingdom governs over all things.
20Bless the LORD, angels and you mighty who do his word;
Bless the LORD as you listen to the voice of his word.
21Bless the LORD, all his hosts and servants who do his will;
22Bless the LORD, all his works in all the places he rules.
Bless the LORD, O my soul; bless the LORD, O my soul!
