Psalm 103

Praise the Lord, O my soul :
 and all that is within me, praise his holy name.
Praise the Lord, O my soul :
 and forget not all his benefits,
Who forgives all your sin :
 and heals all your infirmities,
Who redeems your life from the Pit :
 and crowns you with mercy and compassion;
Who satisfies your being with good things :
 so that your youth is renewed like an eagle’s.
The Lord works righteousness :
 and justice for all who are oppressed.
He made known his ways to Moses :
 and his works to the children of Israel.
The Lord is full of compassion and mercy :
 slow to anger and of great goodness.
He will not always be chiding :
 nor will he keep his anger for ever.
He has not dealt with us according to our sins :
 nor rewarded us according to our wickedness.
For as the heavens are high above the earth :
 so great is his mercy over those that fear him;
As far as the east is from the west :
 so far has he set our sins from us.
As a father is tender towards his children :
 so is the Lord tender to those that fear him.
For he knows of what we are made :
 he remembers that we are but dust.
The days of man are but as grass :
 he flourishes like a flower of the field;
When the wind goes over it, it is gone :
 and its place will know it no more.
But the merciful goodness of the Lord endures for ever and ever
   toward those that fear him :
 and his righteousness upon their children’s children;
Upon those who keep his covenant :
 and remember his commandments to do them.
The Lord has established his throne in heaven :
 and his kingdom rules over all.
Praise the Lord, all you his angels, you that excel in strength :
 you that fulfil his word, and obey the voice of his commandment.
Praise the Lord, all you his hosts :
 his servants who do his will.
Praise the Lord, all his works, in all places of his dominion :
 praise the Lord, O my soul!
