Hymn/Song Information

Thou suitest O Lord thy righteous ways




Thou suit'st, O Lord, thy righteous ways
to various paths of human kind;
with thee shall wondrous mercy find.
They, who for mercy merit praise,


Thou to the just shalt justice show,
the pure thy purity shah see;
Such as perversely choose to go,
shall meet with due returns from thee.


That he the humble soul will save,
and crush the haughty's boasted might,
In me the Lord an instance gave,
whose darkness he has turned to light.


On his firm succor I relyed,
and did o'er num'rous foes prevail;
Nor feared, whilst he was on my side,
the best defended walls to scale.


For God's designs shall still succeed
his word will bear the utmost test:
He's a strong shield to all that need,
and on his sure protection rest.


Who then deserves to be adored,
but God on whom my hopes depend?
Or who, except the mighty Lord,
can with resistless pow'r defend?
