Psalm 103: My Soul Will Glorify the Lord


This setting of Psalm 103 fits into the context of Father’s Day because of its reference to a father’s love in the second verse, but it can be sung during any time of worship.

1. As far as east from west,
Has he taken my sins from me.
He pulled me from the grave
Gave me strength of the eagle’s wings.

My soul will glorify the Lord,
My heart will praise his holy name.
With all that I am I’ll praise the Lord for who He is.

2. The mercy of the Lord
is like a father’s for his son.
He knows how we are formed,
He remembers that we are dust. (Chorus)

3. Glorify the Lord
you, his angels in heaven above.
Glorify the Lord
every creature on earth below. (Chorus)
