510. Thy lovingkindness, Lord, is good and free

1 Thy lovingkindness, Lord, is good and free:
In tender mercy turn thou unto me;
Hide not thy face from me in my distress,
In mercy hear my pray'r, thy servant bless.

2 Needy and sorrowful, to thee I cry;
Let thy salvation set my soul on high;
Then I will sing and praise thy holy Name,
My thankful song thy mercy shall proclaim.

3 With joy the meek shall see my soul restored;
Your heart shall live, ye saints that seek the Lord;
He helps the needy and regards their cries,
Those in distress the Lord will not despise.

4 Let heav'n above his grace and glory tell,
Let earth and sea and all that in them dwell;
Salvation to his people God will give,
And they that love his Name with him shall live.
