Psalm 103
A Psalm of David.


^1O thou my soul, bless God the Lord;

and all that in me is

Be stirred up his holy name

to magnify and bless.

^2Bless, O my soul, the Lord thy God,

and not forgetful be

Of all his gracious benefits

he hath bestow'd on thee.

^3All thine iniquities who doth

most graciously forgive:

Who thy diseases all and pains

doth heal, and thee relieve.

^4Who doth redeem thy life, that thou

to death may'st not go down;

Who thee with loving-kindness doth

and tender mercies crown:

^5Who with abundance of good things

doth satisfy thy mouth;

So that, ev'n as the eagle's age,

renewed is thy youth.

^6God righteous judgment executes

for all oppressed ones.

^7His ways to Moses, he his acts

made known to Isr'el's sons.

^8The Lord our God is merciful,

and he is gracious,

Long-suffering, and slow to wrath,

in mercy plenteous.

^9He will not chide continually,

nor keep his anger still.

^10With us he dealt not as we sinn'd,

nor did requite our ill.

^11For as the heaven in its height

the earth surmounteth far;

So great to those that do him fear

his tender mercies are:

^12As far as east is distant from

the west, so far hath he

From us removed, in his love,

all our iniquity.

^13Such pity as a father hath

unto his children dear;

Like pity shews the Lord to such

as worship him in fear.

^14For he remembers we are dust,

and he our frame well knows.

^15Frail man, his days are like the grass,

as flow'r in field he grows:

^16For over it the wind doth pass,

and it away is gone;

And of the place where once it was

it shall no more be known.

^17But unto them that do him fear

God's mercy never ends;

And to their children's children still

his righteousness extends:

^18To such as keep his covenant,

and mindful are alway

Of his most just commandements,

that they may them obey.

^19The Lord prepared hath his throne

in heavens firm to stand;

And ev'ry thing that being hath

his kingdom doth command.

^20O ye his angels, that excel

in strength, bless ye the Lord;

Ye who obey what he commands,

and hearken to his word.

^21O bless and magnify the Lord,

ye glorious hosts of his;

Ye ministers, that do fulfil

whate'er his pleasure is.

^22O bless the Lord, all ye his works,

wherewith the world is stor'd

In his dominions ev'ry where.

My soul, bless thou the Lord.
