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.
