Psalm 103

A Psalm of David.

8,6,8,6

1O thou my soul, bless God the Lord;

and all that in me is

Be stirred up his holy name

to magnify and bless.

2Bless, O my soul, the Lord thy God,

and not forgetful be

Of all his gracious benefits

he hath bestow’d on thee.

3All thine iniquities who doth

most graciously forgive:

Who thy diseases all and pains

doth heal, and thee relieve.

4Who doth redeem thy life, that thou

to death may’st not go down;

Who thee with loving-kindness doth

and tender mercies crown:

5Who with abundance of good things

doth satisfy thy mouth;

So that, ev’n as the eagle’s age,

renewed is thy youth.

6God righteous judgment executes

for all oppressed ones.

7His ways to Moses, he his acts

made known to Isr’el’s sons.

8The Lord our God is merciful,

and he is gracious,

Long-suffering, and slow to wrath,

in mercy plenteous.

9He will not chide continually,

nor keep his anger still.

10With us he dealt not as we sinn’d,

nor did requite our ill.

11For as the heaven in its height

the earth surmounteth far;

So great to those that do him fear

his tender mercies are:

12As far as east is distant from

the west, so far hath he

From us removed, in his love,

all our iniquity.

13Such pity as a father hath

unto his children dear;

Like pity shews the Lord to such

as worship him in fear.

14For he remembers we are dust,

and he our frame well knows.

15Frail man, his days are like the grass,

as flow’r in field he grows:

16For over it the wind doth pass,

and it away is gone;

And of the place where once it was

it shall no more be known.

17But unto them that do him fear

God’s mercy never ends;

And to their children’s children still

his righteousness extends:

18To such as keep his covenant,

and mindful are alway

Of his most just commandements,

that they may them obey.

19The Lord prepared hath his throne

in heavens firm to stand;

And ev’ry thing that being hath

his kingdom doth command.

20O ye his angels, that excel

in strength, bless ye the Lord;

Ye who obey what he commands,

and hearken to his word.

21O bless and magnify the Lord,

ye glorious hosts of his;

Ye ministers, that do fulfil

whate’er his pleasure is.

22O bless the Lord, all ye his works,

wherewith the world is stor’d

In his dominions ev’ry where.

My soul, bless thou the Lord.
