Bless the Lord, O My Soul

Psalm 103: Bless the LORD O my soul…:)

David wrote the Psalms almost 3,000 years ago. Here is a lovely current worship song from England reflecting the Psalms. About a billion people, at least, will sing this new song as it flows through the technology into the souls and mouths of Christians world wide, joining the multiple billions who have been singing David's songs since about 1000 BC. That's a dynamic community to join.

 Psalm 146 NIV 

1 Praise the LORD. Praise the LORD, O my soul. 2 I will praise the LORD all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live. 3 Do not put your trust in princes, in mortal men, who cannot save. 4 When their spirit departs, they return to the ground; on that very day their plans come to nothing. 5 Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD his God, 6 the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them-- the LORD, who remains faithful forever. 7 He upholds the cause of the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets prisoners free, 8 the LORD gives sight to the blind, the LORD lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves the righteous. 9 The LORD watches over the alien and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked. 10 The LORD reigns forever, your God, O Zion, for all generations. Praise the LORD.

 And here is a classical version  of the Psalms.

 Psalm 103

King James Version (KJV)
103 Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.

Rachmaninoff - Bless the Lord, O My Soul
