113. My Song Forever Shall Record

1 My song forever shall record
the tender mercies of the Lord;
thy faithfulness will I proclaim,
and ev'ry age shall know thy name.
I sing of mercies that endure
forever builded firm and sure.

2 Almighty God, thy lofty throne
has justice for its cornerstone,
and shining bright before thy face
are truth and love and boundless grace.
The heav'ns shall join in glad accord
to praise thee for thy words, O Lord.

3 The swelling sea obeys thy will;
its angry waves thy voice can still;
the heav'ns and earth by right divine,
the world and all therein is thene;
the whole creation's wondous frame
proclaims its Maker's glorious name.

4 With blessing is that nation crowned
whose people know the joyful sound;
they in the light, O Lord, shall live--
the light thy face and favor give.
There fame and might to thee belong,
for in thy favor they are strong.
