Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless His holy name.@Psalm 103:1

Maurice Greene (1696-1755)

Scottish Psalter, 1650, alt.

St. Nicholas (Greene) Maurice Greene (1696-1755) (🔊 pdf nwc).

O thou my soul, bless God the Lord;
And all that in me is
Be stirrèd up His holy name
To magnify and bless.

Bless, O my soul, the Lord thy God,
And not forgetful be
Of all His gracious benefits
He hath bestowed on thee.

Such pity as a father hath
And shows his children dear,
Like pity shows the Lord to such
As worship Him in fear.

Yea, unto them that fear the Lord
His mercy never ends;
And to their children’s children still
His righteousness extends.

To such as keep His covenant
Nor from it go astray,
Who His commandments bear in mind
And faithfully obey.
