Psalm 103. Benedic, anima mea.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Twentieth Day - Morning Prayer.
  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 forgiveth all thy sin, *
    and healeth all thine infirmities;
  4. Who saveth thy life from destruction, *
    and crowneth thee with mercy and loving-kindness;
  5. Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things, *
    making thee young and lusty as an eagle.
  6. The Lord executeth righteousness and judgment *
    for all them that are oppressed with wrong.
  7. He showed his ways unto Moses, *
    his works unto the children of Israel.
  8. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy, *
    long-suffering, and of great goodness.
  9. He will not alway be chiding; *
    neither keepeth he his anger for ever.
  10. He hath not dealt with us after our sins; *
    nor rewarded us according to our wickednesses.
  11. For look how high the heaven is in comparison of the earth; *
    so great is his mercy also toward them that fear him.
  12. Look how wide also the east is from the west; *
    so far hath he set our sins from us.
  13. Yea, like as a father pitieth his own children; *
    even so is the Lord merciful unto them that fear him.
  14. For he knoweth whereof we are made; *
    he remembereth that we are but dust.
  15. The days of man are but as grass; *
    for he flourisheth as a flower of the field.
  16. For as soon as the wind goeth over it, it is gone; *
    and the place thereof shall know it no more.
  17. But the merciful goodness of the Lord endureth for ever and ever upon them that fear him; *
    and his righteousness upon children's children;
  18. Even upon such as keep his covenant, *
    and think upon his commandments to do them.
  19. The Lord hath prepared his seat in heaven, *
    and his kingdom ruleth over all.
  20. O praise the Lord, ye angels of his, ye that excel in strength; *
    ye that fulfil his commandment, and hearken unto the voice of his word.
  21. O praise the Lord, all ye his hosts; *
    ye servants of his that do his pleasure.
  22. O speak good of the Lord, all ye works of his, in all places of his dominion: *
    praise thou the Lord, O my soul.
