Attention, Body, Spirit, Soul

Attention, body, spirit, soul 

and everything that makes me whole; 

and bless the Lord.

Do not forget these benefits; 

you’re healed and lifted from the pit;

and bless the Lord. 

With steadfast love and mercy crowned, 

your youth renewed and goodness found, 

now bless the Lord.

The Lord has worked in history 

to raise oppressed from misery,

so bless the Lord.

God’s slow to anger, full of love. 

Repays us not as we deserve, 

so bless the Lord.

As far as east is from the west, 

with sins removed we enter rest, 

so bless the Lord.

Our days like grass, they swiftly pass. 

The love of God will ever last. 

We bless the Lord.

Let children of God’s covenant, 

who know the righteousness God sent, 

now bless the Lord.

O you, God’s angels, heav’nly host, 

who serve the Lord from coast to coast, 

come bless the Lord.

From everything that God has made 

in every place where people prayed, 

make blessing heard.
