71. O Bless the Lord, My Soul!

1 O bless the Lord, my soul!
Let all within me join
and help my tongue to praise his name
whose mercies are divine.

2 O bless the Lord, my soul,
Let not his mercies lie
forgotten in unthankfulness,
from lack of praise to die.

3 For God forgives our sins
and God relieves our pain;
the Lord who heals our sicknesses
renews our strength again.

4 He crowns our life with love
when ransomed from the grave;
he who redeemed my soul from hell
has sovereign power to save.

5 The Lord provides our food
and gives the sufferers rest;
the Lord has judgment for the proud,
and justice for the oppressed.

6 His mighty works and ways
by Moses he made known,
but gave the world his truth and grace
by his belovèd Son.
