Praise the Lord: Psalm 103

Tonight we had a special extended worship time at church. One of the songs we performed was Praise the Lord, which is taken from Psalm 103. I decided to make that this week’s Sunday Scripture.

  • 1.
  • My soul, praise the Lord, and all that is within me, praise His holy name.
  • 2.
  • My soul, praise the Lord, and do not forget all His benefits.
  • 3.
  • He forgives all your sin; He heals all your diseases.
  • 4.
  • He redeems your life from the Pit; He crowns you with faithful love and compassion.
  • 5.
  • He satisfies you with goodness; your youth is renewed like the eagle.
  • 6.
  • The Lord executes acts of righteousness and justice for all the oppressed.
  • 7.
  • He revealed His ways to Moses, His deeds to the people of Israel.
  • 8.
  • The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger and full of faithful love.
  • 9.
  • He will not always accuse [us] or be angry forever.
  • 10.
  • He has not dealt with us as our sins deserve or repaid us according to our offenses.
  • 11.
  • For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His faithful love toward those who fear Him.
  • 12.
  • As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.
  • 13.
  • As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear Him.
  • 14.
  • For He knows what we are made of, remembering that we are dust.
  • 15.
  • As for man, his days are like grass- he blooms like a flower of the field;
  • 16.
  • when the wind passes over it, it vanishes, and its place is no longer known.
  • 17.
  • But from eternity to eternity the Lord’s faithful love is toward those who fear Him, and His righteousness toward the grandchildren
  • 18.
  • of those who keep His covenant, who remember to observe His instructions.
  • 19.
  • The Lord has established His throne in heaven, and His kingdom rules over all.
  • 20.
  • Praise the Lord, [all] His angels of great strength, who do His word, obedient to His command.
  • 21.
  • Praise the Lord, all His armies, His servants who do His will.
  • 22.
  • Praise the Lord, all His works in all the places where He rules. My soul, praise the Lord!
    Psalm 103 (HCSB)
