607. Thy Loving-kindness, Lord is Good and Free

1 Thy loving-kindness, 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.
