231. O My Soul, Bless Your Redeemer

1 O my soul, bless your Redeemer;
all within me bless God's Name;
bless the Savior, and forget not
all God's mercies to proclaim.

2 God forgives all your transgressions,
all diseases gently heals;
God redeems you from destruction,
and with you so kindly deals.

3 Far as east from west is distant,
God has put away our sin;
like the pity of a father
has the Lord's compassion been.

4 As it was without beginning,
so it lasts without an end;
to their children's children ever
shall God's righteousness extend.

5 Unto such as keep God's cov’nant
and are steadfast in God's way;
unto those who still remember
the commandments and obey.

6 Bless your Maker, all you creatures,
ever under God's control,
all throughout God's vast dominion;
bless the LORD of all, my soul!
