Praise the Lord

Praise the Lord oh my soul
And all my inmost being
Praise the Lord oh my soul
Don't forget His love.
Who forgives of your sins
Who heals all your diseases
Who redeems your life from the pit
Who crowns you with His love
Who satisfies your desires
with good and lovely things
Who renews your heart
like the flight on eagle's wings
Praise the Lord oh my soul
and all my inmost being
Praise the Lord oh my soul
Don't forget His love.
Ellie Holcomb
"Don't Forget His Love--Psalm 103"

Sometimes the simplicity of a psalm
in the sound of a song
deeply ministers to my soul.
Praise Him, my soul--
and every part of me--
don't forget His love.
His love gets worked out in my life daily.
He forgives my sins, heals my diseases,
redeems my life and satisfies my desires.
He renews my heart.
I so want my reflex to be praise 
when moving through my day,
facing the ups and downs that the day brings.
It is not my "go to" when difficulties arise.
I want it to be.
Lord, You are worthy of all my praise.
You are training my praise muscles.
You are good at taking what is weak
and helping that become strong.
May I be mindful of Your steadfast
and kind love all day long.

Praise the Lord, oh my soul.
Don't forget His love.
