Psalms 103:1-5 NASB A Psalm of David. 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 none of His benefits; (3) Who pardons all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases; (4) Who redeems your life from the pit, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion; (5) Who satisfies your years with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle.
