O My Soul, Bless Thou Jehovah

Full Text

1 O my soul, bless thou Jehovah,
All within me bless His name;
Bless Jehovah, and forget not
All His mercies to proclaim.

Refrain:
Bless Jehovah, all His creatures
Ever under His control,
All thro'out His vast dominion;
Bless Jehovah, O my soul.

2 Who forgives all my transgressions,
Thy diseases all who heals;
Who redeems thee from destruction,
Who with thee so kindly deals; [Refrain]

3 Who with tender mercies crowns thee,
Who with good things fills thy mouth,
So that even like the eagle
Thou hast been restored to youth. [Refrain]

3 In His righteousness, Jehovah
Will deliver those distressed;
He will execute just judgment
In the cause of all oppressed. [Refrain]

4 For as high as is the heaven,
Far above the earth below,
Ever great to them that fear Him
Is the mercy He will show. [Refrain]
