Psalm for Wednesday in the Second Week of Advent

Psalm 103:1-10

1    Bless the LORD, O my soul,*
      and all that is within me, bless his holy Name.

2    Bless the LORD, O my soul,*
      and forget not all his benefits.

3    He forgives all your sins*
      and heals all your infirmities.

4    He redeems your life from the grave*
      and crowns you with mercy and loving-kindness;

5    He satisfies you with good things,*
      and your youth is renewed like an eagle’s.

6   The LORD executes righteousness*
     and judgment for all who are oppressed.

7   He made his ways known to Moses*
     and his works to the children of Israel.

8   The LORD is full of compassion and mercy,*
     slow to anger and of great kindness.

9   He will not always accuse us,*
     nor will he keep his anger for ever.

10  He has not dealt with us according to our sins,*
      nor rewarded us according to our wickedness.
