Text Information:

This refrain based on Psalm 103:1 is meant for repeated singing. To “bless God’s holy name” (which could not be spoken by observant Jews) is a reminder to be grateful even for what we cannot comprehend, trusting that God’s providence will show us “the path of life” (Psalm 16:11).
