Hymn/Song Information

THE GOODNESS AND MERCY OF GOD




Above the heaven's created rounds
Thy mercies, Lord, extend;
Thy truth outlives the narrow bounds,
Where time and nature end.


We live and move at thy command,
Thy goodness is our feast;
Great God, thine all-protecting hand
Preserves both man and beast.


How excellent appears the grace,
From whence salvation springs,
How blest the sons of Adam's race,
Who seek thy sheltering wings.


Within thine house the saints abide,
‘Tis heaven's immortal brink,
There pleasure lifts her rapturous tide,
There all that will may drink.


From thee, when creature streams run low
When earthly cisterns fail,
Perpetual springs of health shall flow,
And endless life prevail.


Should all created light decay,
And death close up our eyes,
Thy presence makes eternal day,
Where clouds can never rise.
