318. Bless the Lord, my soul


St. Thomas (Williams):

Aaron Williams, 1763

Psalm 103

James Montgomery, 1819


Bless the Lord, my soul!

His grace to thee proclaim!

And all that is within me join

To bless his holy Name!

O bless the Lord, my soul!

His mercies bear in mind!

Forget not all his benefits!

The Lord to thee is kind.

He will not always chide;

He will with patience wait;

His wrath is ever slow to rise,

And ready to abate.

He pardons all thy sins;

Prolongs thy feeble breath;

He healeth thine infirmities,

And ransoms thee from death.


He clothes thee with his love;

Upholds thee with his truth;

And like the eagle he renews

The vigor of thy youth.

Then bless his holy Name,

Whose grace hath made thee whole,

Whose loving-kindness crowns thy days!

O bless the Lord, my soul!

O God, the Father, Son,

And Spirit ever blest,

The One in Three, the Three in One,

Be endless praise addressed.
