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 ne'er depart,
and may thy justice still protect
and bless the upright heart.
