Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Our June fund drive (one of two such drives we offer each year) ends soon (on June 30), and we have almost reached our goal. If you haven't given yet, would you consider doing so today? Keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So, if you benefit from Hymnary.org, you can make your tax-deductible contribution through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

O My Soul, Bless God, the Father

Full Text

1 O my soul, bless your Redeemer;
All within me, bless God's Name;
Bless the Savior, and forget not
All God's mercies to proclaim.

2 God forgives all your transgressions,
All diseases gently heals;
God redeems you from destruction,
And with you so kindly deals.

3 Far as east from west is distant,
God has put away our sin'
Life the pity of a father
Has the Lord's compassion been.

4 As it was without beginning,
So it lasts without an end;
To their children's children ever
Shall God's righteousness extend.

5 Unto such as keep God's covenant
And are steadfast in God's way;
Unto those who still remember
The commandments and obey.

6 Bless your Maker, all you creatures,
Ever under God's control,
All throughout God's vast dominion;
Bless the Lord of all, my soul!
