To sing the mercies of the Lord my




To sing the mercies of the Lord
my tongue shall never spare
My mouth from age to age accord
thy truth for to declare:


For I have said, that mercy shall
for evermore endure;
Thy faithfulness in the heav'ns all
is stablished firm and sure.


With mine elect, saith God, have I
a faithful cov'nant made,
And sworn to David solemnly,
having to him thus said;


Thy seed for ever I will stay,
and stablish it full fast,
And still uphold thy throne alway
from age to age to last.


The heav'ns do show with joy and mirth
thy wondrous works, O Lord;
Thy saints within thy Church on earth
thy faith and truth record.


Who with the Lord is equal then
in all the clouds abroad.;
Among the sons of gods or men
what one is like our God?


God in the assembly of the saints
is greatly to be dread,
And over all that dwell about
in rev'rence to be had.


Lord God of hosts, in all the world
what one is like to thee?
On every side, most mighty Lord,
thy truth is seen to be.


The rage and fury of the sea
thou rulest at thy will,
And when the waves thereof arise,
thou mak'st them calm and still:


And Egypt, Lord, thou hast subdued,
thou hast destroyed it quite;
Thy foes thou closely hast pursued,
and scattered through thy might.
