Psalm 103:1 First Part (bless, O My Soul, The Living God)

Psalm 103:1. 1-7. First Part. L. M.
Blessing God for his goodness to soul and body.


Bless, O my soul, the living God,
Call home thy thoughts that rove abroad;
Let all the powers within me join
In work and worship so divine.

Bless, O my soul, the God of grace;
His favours claim thy highest praise;
Why should the wonders he hath wrought
Be lost in silence and forgot?

'Tis he, my soul, that sent his Son
To die for crimes which thou hast done;
He owns the ransom; and forgives
The hourly follies of our lives.

The vices of the mind he heals,
And cures the pains that nature feels;
Redeems the soul from hell, and saves
Our wasting life from threat'ning graves.

Our youth decay'd his power repairs;
His mercy crowns our growing years;
He satisfies our mouth with good,
And fills our hopes with heavenly food.

He sees th' oppressor and th' opprest,
And often gives the sufferers rest;
But will his justice more display
In the last great rewarding day.

(His power he shew'd by Moses' hands,
And gave to Israel his commands;
But sent his truth and mercy down
To all the nations by his Son.

Let the whole earth his power confess,
Let the whole earth adore his grace;
The Gentile with the Jew shall join
In work and worship so divine.)

Psalm 103:2 Second Part (the Lord, How Wondrous Are His Ways)
Psalm 103:2. 8-18. Second Part. L. M.God's gentle chastisement; or,His tender mercy to his people.The Lord, how wondrous are his ways:How firm his truth how large his grace;He takes his mercy for his throne,And thence he makes his glories known.Not half so high his power hath spreadThe starry heavens above our head,As his rich love exceeds our praise,Exceeds the highest hopes we raise. Not half so far hath nature plac'dThe rising morning from the west,As his forgiving grace removesThe daily guilt of those he loves.How slowly doth his wrath arise!On swifter wings salvation flies;And if he lets his anger burn,How soon

'Twas he this earth's foundation laid;Heaven is the building of his hand:This earth
