Bless the LORD, oh my soul!

"Come, soul, look at the greatness and  goodness of God. Join my mouth, and let us bless the Lord with our whole being."  
-John Piper

This is what it means to 'bless the Lord'. Especially while singing excellent songs such as Matt Redman's '10,000 Reasons', I have wondered exactly what the Bible means by 'blessing' the Lord with my soul, not just my mouth. 

I may have been praising the goodness of God with my mouth but now I am telling my soul to come, look and see.
