Praise to the Lord of Love

Of David.

103 All that I am, praise the Lord;

everything in me, praise his holy name.

My whole being, praise the Lord

and do not forget all his kindnesses.

He forgives all my sins

and heals all my diseases.

He saves my life from the grave

and loads me with love and mercy.

He satisfies me with good things

and makes me young again, like the eagle.

The Lord does what is right and fair

for all who are wronged by others.

He showed his ways to Moses

and his deeds to the people of Israel.

The Lord shows mercy and is kind.

He does not become angry quickly, and he has great love.

He will not always accuse us,

and he will not be angry forever.

10  He has not punished us as our sins should be punished;

he has not repaid us for the evil we have done.

11  As high as the sky is above the earth,

so great is his love for those who respect him.

12  He has taken our sins away from us

as far as the east is from west.

13  The Lord has mercy on those who respect him,

as a father has mercy on his children.

14  He knows how we were made;

he remembers that we are dust.

15  Human life is like grass;

we grow like a flower in the field.

16  After the wind blows, the flower is gone,

and there is no sign of where it was.

17  But the Lord’s love for those who respect him

continues forever and ever,

and his goodness continues to their grandchildren

18  and to those who keep his agreement

and who remember to obey his orders.

19  The Lord has set his throne in heaven,

and his kingdom rules over everything.

20  You who are his angels, praise the Lord.

You are the mighty warriors who do what he says

and who obey his voice.

21  You, his armies, praise the Lord;

you are his servants who do what he wants.

22  Everything the Lord has made

should praise him in all the places he rules.

My whole being, praise the Lord.
