Lyrics

Refrain:
All of my life, I will praise the living God,
My heart full of joy,
I will bless his holy name.

Bless the Lord, O my soul!
And never forget his gifts.

Bless the Lord, O my soul!
He pardons all our sins.

Bless the Lord, O my soul!
He saves us from all harm.

Bless the Lord, O my soul!
He fills our life with good.

Bless the Lord, O my soul!
He keeps us ever young.

Bless the Lord, O my soul!
His mercy never ends.

Bless the Lord, O my soul!
His kindness never ends.

Bless the Lord, O my soul!
His promises he keeps.

Bless the Lord, O my soul!
He died to bring us life.

Bless the Lord, O my soul!
He is the Bread of Life.

Bless the Lord, O my soul!
In him we find all love.

  1. I learned this song over 40years ago at the catholic school suprisingly it came to mind this morning. I searched for it on google and here it was, thank you.

  2. The spirit of thanksgiving is very contagious. Woke up this morning too, and while trying to embrace this Sunday morning, this song came to mind. I googled it and voila. It's a good prayer song to start this beautiful day, despite what's happening around or what's not. Dates almost forty years too.
