Full Text

1 O bless the Lord, my soul,
As the friend who died for thee;
And bless Him for the saving grace,
So rich, so full and free.

Refrain:
Bless the Lord, my soul,
Bless the Lord, my soul;
And all that is within me,
Bless His holy name.

2 O bless the Lord, my soul,
As the rock in which we hide;
And bless Him for the sense of peace,
Amid the surging tide. [Refrain]

3 O bless the Lord, my soul,
As the hope so sure and sweet;
And bless Him for the loving call
To worship at his feet. [Refrain]

4 O bless the Lord, my soul,
As the Guide in days to come;
And bless Him for the crown of life
In thy eternal home. [Refrain]
