1 O my soul, bless your Redeemer;
All within me, bless God's Name;
Bless the Savior, and forget not
All God's mercies to proclaim.

2 God forgives all your transgressions,
All diseases gently heals;
God redeems you from destruction,
And with you so kindly deals.

3 Far as east from west is distant,

4 As it was without beginning,
So it lasts without an end;
To their children's children ever
Shall God's righteousness extend.

5 Unto such as keep God's covenant
And are steadfast in God's way;
Unto those who still remember
The commandments and obey.

6 Bless your Maker, all you creatures,
Ever under God's control,
All throughout God's vast dominion;
Bless the Lord of all, my soul!
