352. O My Soul, Bless Thou Jehovah

1. O my soul, bless thou Jehovah,
All within me bless His Name;
Bless Jehovah, and forget not
All His mercies to proclaim.
For as high as is the heaven
Far above the earth below,
Ever great to them that fear Him
Is the mercy He will ever, ever show.

2. Who forgives all thy transgressions,
Thy diseases all who heals,
Who redeems thee from destruction,
Who with thee so kindly dwells.
For as high as is the heaven
Far above the earth below,
Ever great to them that fear Him
Is the mercy He will ever, ever show.

3. He will not forever chide us,
Nor keep anger in His mind;
Hath not dealt as we offended,
Nor rewarded as we sinned.
For as high as is the heaven
Far above the earth below,
Ever great to them that fear Him
Is the mercy He will ever, ever show.

4. Far as east from west is distant,
He hath put away our sins;
Like the pity of a father
Hath the Lord's compassion been.
For as high as is the heaven
Far above the earth below,
Ever great to them that fear Him
Is the mercy He will ever, ever show.
