Hymn/Song Information

Bless O my soul the living God Call home




Bless, O my soul! the living God.
Call home thy thoughts that rove abroad.
Let all the powers within me join
|: In work and worship so divine. :|


Bless, O my soul! the God of grace.
His favours claim thy highest praise.
Why should the wonders He hath wrought
|: Be lost in silence and forgot. :|


'Tis He, my soul! Who sent His Son
To die for crimes which thou hast done.
He owns the ransom and forgives
|: The hourly follies of our lives. :|


The vices of the mind He heals,
And cures the pains that nature feels;
Redeems the soul from hell, and saves
|:Our wasting life from threatening graves. :|


Our youth decayed, His power repairs;
His mercy crowns our growing years;
He satisfies our mouth with good,
|:And fills our hopes with heavenly food. :|


He sees th’oppressor and th’oppressed,
And often gives the suff’rers rest;
But will His justice more display
|:In the last great rewarding day. :|


His power He showed by Moses’ hands,
And gave to Israel His commands;
But sent His truth and mercy down
|:To all the nations by His Son. :|


Let the whole earth His power confess.
Let the whole earth adore His grace.
The Gentile with the Jew shall join
|: In work and worship so divine. :|


---Alternative verses---


Bless, O my soul! the God of grace.
His favors claim thy highest praise.
Let not the wonders He hath wrought
|: Be lost in silence and forgot. :|


'Tis He, my soul! That sent His Son
To die for crimes which thou hast done.
He owns the ransom and forgives
|: The hourly follies of our lives. :|


Let every land His power confess.
Let all the earth adore His grace.
My heart and tongue with rapture join
|: In work and worship so divine. :|
