O Bless the Lord, My Soul

Full Text

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,
Who is to Thee so kind.

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

4 He feeds thee with His love,
Upholds thee with His truth;
And, like the eagle's, he renews
The vigour of Thy youth.

5 Then bless the Lord, my soul,
His grace, His love proclaim;
Let all that is within me, join
To bless His holy name.
