252. O Lord, You Are My God and King

1 O Lord, You are my God and King,
And I will ever bless Your Name;
I will extol You every day,
And evermore Your praise proclaim.
You, Lord, are greatly to be praised,
Your greatness is beyond our thoughts;
All generations shall tell forth
The mighty wonders You have wrought.

2 How rich in grace are You, O Lord
Full of compassion, merciful,
Your angel always show to rise;
Your steadfast love You show to all,
For You are good in all Your ways,
Your creatures know Your constant care.
To all Your works Your love extends,
All souls Your tender mercies share.

3 Your works will give You thanks, O Lord,
Your saints Your mighty acts will show,
Till all the peoples of the earth
Your kingdom, power, glory know.
Eternal is Your kingdom, Lord,
Forever strong, forever sure;
While generations rise and die,
Your high dominion will endure.
