Lyrics

Title: Bless the Lord, O My Soul
Lyricist: John William Gordon (based on Psalms 103:1–5)
Composer: John William Gordon

Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And forget not all His benefits.

Truth e’er forgives thine iniquities,
Vanquishes sin with all-pow’r,
Balances out thine inequities,
Seedling to sanctified flow’r.

Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And forget not all His benefits.

Love navigates every attitude,
Heals thy disease, proving health.
Harmony flowing from gratitude
Shows thy inherited wealth.

Life calls thy life to redemption from
Matter’s destructive conceit,
Promises man an exemption from
Death’s vapid sting and deceit.

Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And forget not all His benefits,

Who gives thy mouth satisfaction, thy
Youth like the eagle’s renews,
Crowns thee with tender attraction, thy
Selfhood with kindness imbues.

Bless the Lord, O my soul,
