28. Thy mercy, Lord, is in the heavens

1 Thy mercy, Lord, is in the heavens;
thy truth doth reach the clouds:
thy justice is like mountains great;
thy judgments deep as floods:

2 Lord, all creation thou dost keep.
How precious is thy grace!
Therefore in shadow of thy wings
we all our trust shall place.

3 We with the bounty of thy house
shall be well satisfied;
from rivers of thy pleasure thou
wilt drink to us provide.

4 Because of life the fountain pure
remains alone with thee;
and in that purest light of thine
we clearly light shall see.
