1 Bless the Lord, O my soul, ¨ and all that is within me bless his holy name.
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, ¨ and forget not all his benefits;
3 Who forgives all your sins ¨ and heals all your infirmities;
4 Who redeems your life from the Pit ¨ and crowns you with faithful love and compassion;
5 Who satisfies you with good things, ¨ so that your youth is renewed like an eagle’s.
6 The Lord executes righteousness ¨ and judgement for all who are oppressed.
7 He made his ways known to Moses ¨ and his works to the children of Israel.
8 The Lord is full of compassion and mercy, ¨ slow to anger and of great kindness.
9 He will not always accuse us, ¨ neither will he keep his anger for ever.
10 He has not dealt with us according to our sins, ¨ nor rewarded us according to our wickedness.
11 For as the heavens are high above the earth, ¨ so great is his mercy upon those who fear him.
12 As far as the east is from the west, ¨ so far has he set our sins from us.
13 As a father has compassion on his children, ¨ so is the Lord merciful towards those who fear him.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit: as it was in the beginning is now and shall be for ever. Amen.
