The Lord is kind and merciful.

Verse 1:
My soul, give thanks to the Lord,
all my being, bless his holy name.
My soul give thanks to the Lord
and never forget all his blessings.

Verse 2:
The Lord is compassion and love,
slow to anger and rich in mercy.
As a father has compassion on his sons
the Lord has pity on those who fear him.

Verse 3:
The love of the Lord is everlasting
upon those who hold him in fear;
his justice reaches out to children’s children
when they keep his covenant in truth.
