369. O Bless the Lord, My Soul

1 O bless the Lord, my soul,
His grace to thee proclaim.
And all that is within me join
To bless His holy name.

2 O bless the Lord, my soul;
His mercies bear in mind;
Forget not all His benefits:
The Lord to thee is kind.

3 He will not always chide;
He will with patience wait;
His wrath is ever slow to rise,
And ready to abate.

4 He pardons all thy sins;
Prolongs thy feeble breath;
He healeth thine infirmities,
And ransoms thee from death.

5 He clothes thee with His love;
Upholds thee with His truth;
And like the eagle He renews
The vigor of thy youth.

6 Then bless His holy name,
Whose grace hath made thee whole,
Whose lovingkindness crowns thy days;
O bless the Lord, my soul!
