1Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
2Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not (always remember!) all his benefits:
3Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
4Who redeemeth (rescues) thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
(Provides unusual favor, unprecedented honor!)
5Who satisfieth thy mouth (life) with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.NOTE: Words in parentheses reflect Bishop Johnson's emphasis.
