                           by Isaac Watts, 1674-1748
                                  Text From:
                              THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL
                 (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)

        1. Oh, bless the Lord, my soul!
        Let all within me join
        And aid my tongue to bless His name
        Whose favors are divine.

        2. Oh, bless the Lord, my soul,
        Nor let His mercies lie
        Forgotten in unthankfulness
        And without praises die!

        3. 'Tis He forgives thy sins;
        'Tis He relieves thy pain;
        'Tis He that heals thy sicknesses
        And makes thee young again.

        4. He crowns thy life with love
        When ransomed from the grave;
        He that redeemed my soul from hell
        Hath sovereign power to save.

        5. He fills the poor with good;
        He gives the sufferers rest:
        The Lord hath judgments for the proud
        And justice for th' opprest.

        6. His wondrous works and ways
        He made by Moses known,
        But sent the world His truth and grace
        By His beloved Son.
