Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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 >
