O Bless the Lord My Soul: Psalm 103

by admin on May 18, 2010

This versification of Psalm 103 is from the Scottish hymn writer, James Montgomery (1771-1854). He captures the essence of this hymn of praise as does this modified melody from Southern Harmony. It’s a joyous remembering of God’s mercies, kindness, and His providential care. This was also a favorite song of my young daughter. I’m grateful for Michael Card for singing this song on the album; I’ve appreciated his music and his friendship for many years.

O bless the Lord, my soul! His grace to you 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 you 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 your sins; Prolongs your feeble breath;
He heals all your infirmities, And ransoms you from death.

He clothes you with His love; Upholds you with His truth;
And like the eagle He renews The vigor of your youth.
Then bless His holy Name, Whose grace has made you whole,
Whose lovingkindness crowns your days! O bless the Lord, my soul!
