O My Soul! Bless Thou Jehovah

Representative Text

1 Oh! my soul, bless thou Jehovah!
God of love and grace art Thou;
Thou alone art wise and holy;
At Thy feet I humbly bow.

2 Thou Thy Son hast freely given
All our sins to bear away;
On the cross He made atonement,
Then to glory led the way.

3 He for us received the Spirit,
Precious gift of love divine,
Sheds Him forth upon Thy children;
Now forever He is mine.

4 Jesus soon again returneth!
Evermore with Him I’ll be,
Like Him through the endless ages,
Saved for all eternity.
