Praise the Lord, O my soul,
and all that is within me,
praise his holy Name.
who forgiveth all thy sin,
and healeth all thine infirmities,
who saveth thy life from destruction,
and crowneth thee with mercy and loving kindness.
Praise the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits.
O praise the Lord, ye angels of his,
ye that excell in strength:
that fulfill his commandment,
ye servants that do his pleasure.
O speak good of the Lord,
all ye works of his,
Hallelujah,
 Amen.
