Psalm 103. Benedic, anima mea.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Twentieth Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. Bless the Lord, O my soul, *
    and all that is within me, bless his holy Name.
  2. Bless the Lord, O my soul, *
    and forget not all his benefits.
  3. He forgives all your sins *
    and heals all your infirmities;
  4. He redeems your life from the grave *
    and crowns you with mercy and loving-kindness;
  5. He satisfies you with good things, *
    and your youth is renewed like an eagle's.
  6. The Lord executes righteousness *
    and judgment for all who are oppressed.
  7. He made his ways known 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 kindness.
  9. He will not always accuse us, *
    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 is his mercy great upon those who fear him.
  12. As far as the east is from the west, *
    so far has he removed our sins from us.
  13. As a father cares for his children, *
    so does the Lord care for those who fear him.
  14. For he himself knows whereof we are made; *
    he remembers that we are but dust.
  15. Our days are like the grass; *
    we flourish like a flower of the field;
  16. When the wind goes over it, it is gone, *
    and its place shall know it no more.
  17. But the merciful goodness of the Lord endures for ever on those who fear him, *
    and his righteousness on children's children;
  18. On those who keep his covenant *
    and remember his commandments and do them.
  19. The Lord has set his throne in heaven, *
    and his kingship has dominion over all.
  20. Bless the Lord, you angels of his, you mighty ones who do his bidding, *
    and hearken to the voice of his word.
  21. Bless the Lord, all you his hosts, *
    you ministers of his who do his will.
  22. Bless the Lord, all you works of his, in all places of his dominion; *
    bless the Lord, O my soul.
