1 O thou my soul, bless God the Lord;
and all that in me is
be stirrèd up his holy name
to magnify and bless.
2 Bless, O my soul, the Lord thy God,
and not forgetful be
of all his gracious benefits
he hath bestowed on thee.
3 All thine iniquities who doth
most graciously forgive;
who thy diseases all and pains
doth heal, and thee relieve.
4 Who doth redeem thy life, that thou
to death mayest not go down;
who thee with loving-kindness doth
and tender mercies crown.
5 Who with abundance of good things
doth satisfy thy mouth;
so that even as the eagle's age,
renewèd is thy youth.
