Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

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

363. O bless the Lord, my soul!

1 O bless the Lord, my soul!
Let all within me join,
And aid my tongue to bless His name
Whose favors are divine.

2 'Tis He forgives thy sins;
'Tis He relieves thy pain;
'Tis He that heals thy sicknesses,
And gives thee strength again.

3 He crowns thy life with love,
When rescued from the grave;
He, that redeemed my souls from death,
Hath boundless power to save.

4 He fills the poor with good,
He gives the suff'rers rest;
The Lord hath justice for the proud,
And mercy for th'oppressed.

5 His wondrous works and ways
He made by Moses known;
But sent the world His truth and grace
By His beloved Son.

6 O bless the Lord, my soul!
Nor let this mercies lie
Forgotten in unthankfulness,
And without praises die.
