60. Thy Mercy and Thy Truth, O Lord

1 Thy mercy and thy truth, O Lord,
Transcend the lofty sky;
Thy judgments are a mighty deep,
And as the mountains high.

2 Lord, thou preservest man and beast;
Since thou art ever kind,
Beneath the shadow of thy wings
We may a refuge find.

3 With the abundance of thy house
We shall be satisfied,
From rivers of unfailing joy
Our thirst shall be supplied.

4 The fountain of eternal life
Is found alone with thee,
And in the brightness of thy light
We clearly light shall see.

5 From those that know thee may thy love
And mercy never depart,
And may thy justice still protect
And bless the upright heart.
