GOD'S MERCY




For thee, O God, our constant praise;
In Zion waits, thy chosen seat;
Our promised altars there we'll raise,
and all our zealous vows complete.


O Thou, who to my humble prayer
didst always bend thy listening ear,
To thee shall all mankind repair,
and at thy gracious throne appear.


Our sins (though numberless) in vain
to stop thy flowing mercy try;
For grace shall cleanse the guilty stain,
and wash away the crimson dye.


Blest is the man, who near thee placed,
within thy sacred dwelling lives!
Whilst we at humbler distance taste
the vast delights thy temple gives.


By wondrous acts, O God, most just,
have we thy gracious answer found;
In thee remotest nations trust,
and those whom stormy waves surround..


God, by his strength, sets fast the hills,
and does his matchless pow'r engage,'
With which the sea's loud waves he stills,
and angry crowds tumultuous rage.


---Alternative verses---


Our sins (though numberless) in vain
to stop thy flowing mercy try;
Whilst thou o'erlook'st the guilty stain,
and washest out the crimson dye.


In wakeful hours of night,
I call my God to mind;
I think how wise thy counsels are,
And all thy dealings kind.


How blest the man who, near thee placed
Within thy heavenly dwelling lives!
While we, at humbler distance, taste
The vast delight thy temple gives.
