“Bless the Lord O My Soul
And forget not all His benefits
Who forgives all your iniquities
Who heals all your diseases
Who redeems your life from destruction
Who crowns you with loving-kindness and tender mercies”.
Psalm 103: 2-4
My grace and my mercy have been given to you in abundance
Even when you did not know me or honour me.
I ask you to love with my love those who do not know me –
They are not to be judged by my people.
I execute righteousness and justice
For all who are oppressed.
A bruised reed I will not break.
I was bruised for your iniquities my people.
There is a way that seems right to a man
But that way leads to destruction.
In all your ways, acknowledge me
And I will direct your paths.
I will never leave you or forsake you.
I do love you with an everlasting love –
That love is to be shared with all those around you.
Of yourselves, you can do none of my works.
Be enriched with my Word
Deep in your innermost being
And with my love and grace and mercy
Flowing freely by my Spirit,
You will accomplish my heart’s desire
Revealing to the world
“Christ in you the hope of Glory”.
