Psalm 103

1 Praise the Lord, O my soul:
    and all that is within me, praise his holy name.
2 Praise the Lord, O my soul:
    and forget not all his benefits,
3 Who forgives all your sin:
    and heals all your infirmities,
4 Who redeems your life from the Pit:
    and crowns you with mercy and compassion;
5 Who satisfies your being with good things:
    so that your youth is renewed like an eagle's.
6 The Lord works righteousness:
    and justice for all who are oppressed.
7 He made known his ways to Moses:
    and his works to the children of Israel.
8 The Lord is full of compassion and mercy:
    slow to anger and of great goodness.
9 He will not always be chiding:
    nor will he keep his anger for ever.
10 He has not dealt with us according to our sins:
    nor rewarded us according to our wickedness.
11 For as the heavens are high above the earth:
    so great is his mercy over those that fear him;
12 As far as the east is from the west:
    so far has he set our sins from us.
13 As a father is tender towards his children:
    so is the Lord tender to those that fear him.
14 For he knows of what we are made:
    he remembers that we are but dust.
15 Our days are but as grass:
    we flourish like a flower of the field;
16 When the wind goes over it, it is gone:
    and its place will know it no more.
17 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;
18 Upon those who keep his covenant:
    and remember his commandments to do them.
19 The Lord has established his throne in heaven:
    and his kingdom rules over all.
20 Praise the Lord, all you his angels, you that excel in strength:
    you that fulfil his word, and obey the voice of his commandment.
21 Praise the Lord, all you his hosts:
    his servants who do his will.
22 Praise the Lord, all his works, in all places of his dominion:
    praise the Lord, O my soul!
