Lessons Bread of Life Psalm 103:1-13
1Bless the LORD, | O my soul,*
and all that is within me,
bless his | holy name!
2Bless the LORD, | O my soul,*
and forget not all his | benefits,
3who forgives all your in- | iquity,*
who heals all your dis- | eases,
4who redeems your life | from the pit,*
who crowns you with steadfast love and | mercy,
5who satisfies | you with good*
so that your youth is renewed like the | eagle’s.
6The LORD works | righteousness*
and justice for all who | are oppressed.
7He made known his ways to | Moses,*
his acts to the people of | Israel.
8The LORD is merciful and | gracious,*
slow to anger and abounding in | steadfast love.
9He will not | always chide,*
nor will he keep his anger for- | ever.
10He does not deal with us according | to our sins,*
nor repay us according to our in- | iquities.
11For as high as the heavens are a- | bove the earth,*
so great is his steadfast love toward those who | fear him;
12as far as the east is | from the west,*
so far does he remove our transgres- | sions from us.
13As a father shows compassion to his | children,*
so the LORD shows compassion to those who | fear him.
