186. 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, all Thy creatures Thou wilt save.
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.
