Mäntyjärvi, Jaakko: Benedic anima mea Domino
Benedic anima mea Domino (1994)
Benedic anima mea Domino, et omnia quae intra me sunt nomini sancto ejus. Benedic anima mea Domino, et noli oblivisci omnes retributiones ejus. Qui propitiatur omnibus iniquitatibus tuis; qui sanat omnes infirmitates tuas: qui redimit de interitu vitam tuam; qui coronat te in misericordia et miserationibus: qui replet in bonis desiderium tuum; renovabitur ut aquilae juventus tua.
Benedicite Domino, angeli ejus: potentes virtute, facientes verbum illius, ad audiendam vocem sermonum ejus. Benedicite Domino, omnes virtutes ejus; ministri ejus, qui facitis voluntatem ejus. Benedicite Domino, omnia opera ejus: in omni loco dominationis ipsius, benedic anima mea Domino. Amen.
Praise the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me praise his holy Name. Praise the Lord, O my soul: and forget not all his benefits; Who forgiveth all thy sin: and healeth all thine infirmities; Who saveth thy life from destruction: and crowneth thee with mercy and loving-kindness; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things: making thee young and lusty as an eagle.
O praise the Lord, ye angels of his, ye that excel in strength: ye that fulfil his commandment, and hearken unto the voice of his words. O praise the Lord, all ye his hosts: ye servants of his that do his pleasure. O speak good of the Lord, all ye works of his, in all places of his dominion: praise thou the Lord, O my soul.
