121. Bless, O My Soul, the Living God

1 Bless, O my soul, the living God;
call home thy thoughts that rove abroad;
let all the powers within me join
in work and worship so divine.

2 Bless, O my soul, the God of grace;
his favors claim thy highest praise;
why should the wonders he hath wrought
be lost in silence and forgot?

3 How slowly doth his wrath arise!
On swifter wings salvation flies.
Let the whole earth his power confess;
let the whole earth adore his grace.

4 'Tis he, my soul, that sent his Son
to die for crimes which thou hast done;
he owns the ransom and forgives
the hourly follies of our lives.

5 Our God, his love is ever sure
to all his saints, and shall endure;
form age to age his truth shall reign,
nor children's children hope in vain.
