BLESS THE LORD!!

Once again, I find myself reading and enjoying Psalms.  In 103:1-9, I find myself echoing the very words of David...

I bind my heart to David's and cry
"BLESSED THE LORD, MY SOUL!
Forget none of His benefits,
Him Who makes you whole!
Him Who waives iniquity,
yea, all of sins, forgives...
Him Who, in the very depth
of this man's spirit, lives!!

He crowns my life with lovingkindess,
mercy for the same;
He fills my life and satisfies me,
bless His holy Name!
And even as the eagle's is
my very strength renewed;
unto the Lord of goodness goes
my heartfelt gratitude!

Yea, and I am vindicated
by the Lord my God.
Upon the heads of them that would
oppress me does He trod!
Even as His ways were known
to Moses in his day,
the very same He does for me-
justice to convey.

Considerate and gracious, oh,
His mercy to abound!
His anger and hostility,
but for a time be found.
His attributes and blessings, though,
forever to remain!
"BLESS THE LORD, O MY SOUL!" my
perennial refrain!!

There is a song inside of every one of us.  It is my hope that the song inside of you is one of praise and excitement to Jesus Christ!  And if you can't find that song, just open up The Bible!
