Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

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 >
