Bless The Lord, Oh My Soul
Bless the Lord, oh my soul, He is worthy of much praise,
His righteousness is new in the start of every day;
He heals me when I’m broken, & helps me to stand,
Oh, what a privilege to be lead by His strong hand!
Bless the Lord, oh my soul, He is full of sweet grace,
He is slow to anger, over all my sinful ways;
He knows my frame, remembering I am but dust,
He gives me His love when I give Him my trust!
Bless the Lord, oh my soul, He saved my soul from Hell,
He loads me with benefits, greater than I can tell;
As far as this old earth is from wondrous Heaven,
Is where my sins will go when they are forgiven!
Bless the Lord, oh my soul, He gave me His holy word,
His goodness to me is richer than I deserve;
I bless Him with my voice, His glory I proclaim,
With all that is within me, bless His holy name!
