O My Soul, Bless Thou Jehovah

Representative Text

1 O my soul, bless thou Jehovah,
All within me bless His name;
Bless Jehovah, and forget not
All His mercies to proclaim.

Refrain:
Bless Jehovah, all His creatures
Ever under His control,
All thro'out His vast dominion;
Bless Jehovah, O my soul.

2 Who forgives all my transgressions,
Thy diseases all who heals;
Who redeems thee from destruction,
Who with thee so kindly deals; [Refrain]

3 Who with tender mercies crowns thee,
Who with good things fills thy mouth,
So that even like the eagle
Thou hast been restored to youth. [Refrain]

3 In His righteousness, Jehovah
Will deliver those distressed;
He will execute just judgment
In the cause of all oppressed. [Refrain]

4 For as high as is the heaven,
Far above the earth below,
Ever great to them that fear Him
Is the mercy He will show. [Refrain]

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
