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 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

1. As the song plays the first time (During Verse 1) make remarks about the blessings of harvest time and enjoying the beauty of God's Creation. We should stop each day and take in the beauty of the Earth and go to God in prayer and thanksgiving.
2. As the song continues read Psalm 103: 1-13 (During Verses 2 - 3)
Let the song end.
3. When the song restarts, sing Verses 1 - 3 together.
4. Prayer and Meditation.
Holy God We Praise Thy Name
Holy God, we praise thy name;
Lord of all, we bow before thee;
all on earth thy scepter claim;
all in heaven above adore thee.
Infinite thy vast domain;
everlasting is thy reign.
Hark the glad celestial hymn
angel choirs above are raising;
cherubim and seraphim,
in unceasing chorus praising,
fill the heavens with sweet accord:
Holy, holy, holy Lord.
Lo! the apostolic train
joins thy sacred name to hallow;
prophets swell the glad refrain,
and the white-robed martyrs follow.
And from morn to set of sun,
through the church the song goes on.
