457. Oh, Bless the Lord, My Soul

1 Oh, bless the Lord, my soul!
Let all in me combine
To aid my tongue to bless his name
Whose favor is divine.

2 Oh, bless the Lord, my soul,
Nor let his mercies lie
Forgotten in unthankfulness
And without praises die.

3 The Lord forgives my sins,
And he relieves my pain;
The Lord has healed my sicknesses
And made me whole again.

4 He crowns my life with love,
He ransoms from the grave;
He that redeemed my soul from hell
Has sov'reign pow'r to save.

5 He fills the poor with good;
He gives the suff'rers rest;
The Lord has judgments for the proud
Relief for those oppressed.

6 His works and laws and ways
He made by Moses known
But showed the world his loving heart
In Christ, his only Son.
