Hymn/Song Information

Sweet is thy mercy O my God When humbled




Sweet is thy mercy, O my God!
When humbled at thy feet,
I learn the lessons of thy rod,
Thy mercy, Lord, is sweet.


For thou dost not in wrath chastise,
But when I go astray,
“Return,” a voice behind me cries,
“Walk here;—this is the way.”


Impatient of thine easy yoke,
If heedless yet I roam,
Some sharp affliction, with a stroke
Of kindness, warns me home.


That godly sorrow then I feel,
Which nothing can control,
Until the hand that wounded, heal,
That bruised me, make me whole.


As, at thy word, the winds and waves
From ocean warfare cease;
That word my soul from shipwreck saves,
Thy presence brings me peace.


“Sweet is thy mercy, I my God!”
‘T is transport to repeat,
When thou hast thrown aside the rod,
“Thy mercy, Lord, is sweet!”
