Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16
Verse 1: O bless the Lord, my soul! Let all within me join, And aid my tongue to bless His name Whose favors are divine. O bless the Lord, my soul! Nor let His mercies lie Forgotten in unthankful ness, And without praises die.
Verse 2: The Lord forgives your sins; And He relieves your pain; And He heals all your sicknesses, And gives you strength again. He crowns your life with love, When rescued from the grave; He that redeemed our souls from death, Has boundless pow’r to save.
Verse 3: He fills the poor with good; He gives the suff’rers rest: The Lord has justice for the proud, And mercy for th’oppressed. His wondrous works and ways He made by Moses known; But sent the world His truth and grace By His beloved Son.
