Words: The Psalter for Christian Worship, Michael Morgan
A Psalm of Thanksgiving
Bless, O bless the LORD, my soul, All within me, praise the LORD! In the fullness of my life, Ever is God's name adored! Who redeems my sinful soul, Makes my fainting spirit whole.
Merciful, with grace endued, God will judge with righteousness; Slow to anger or to chide, Swift to pardon and to bless. Though our sin deserves the rod, More than sparing is our God.
High as heav'n above the earth Is the LORD'S redeeming love; Far as east from west is laid, So does God our sin remove. As a parent, pity take; Cleanse our hearts for Thine own sake.
Like the grass that grows and fades, So the cycle of our days; But God's love is ever sure Unto those who sing God's praise. LORD of heav'n, in faithfulness May I never cease to bless.
