Praise the Lord, my soul;  all my inmost being, praise his holy name.  2 Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits

3 who forgives all your sins  and heals all your diseases, 4 who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion,

5 who satisfies your desires with good things  so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.  Psalm 103.  1-5
