Bible Marginalia- Bless the Lord, O My Soul

#9 in the Bible Marginalia Series

Bless the Lord, O my Soul.
and all that is within me,
bless His holy name!

For we have a God that shows compassion
 and removes our transgressions.
He is merciful and gracious.
He is slow to anger.

Bless the Lord all my soul
 and forget not all His benefits.
He forgives, heals, redeems, crowns,
 and satisfies us with good.

He does not repay us with what we deserve,
but withholds anger and 
as high as the heavens are above the earth, 
so great is His steadfast love to us.

As far as the east is from the west
 He removes our sins from us.

v.21- Bless all of His ministers who do His will.

With Thanksgiving for all the Church workers
 in the Southeastern District-LCMS
May the Lord bless them in ALL Their WAYS.
