1 My song forever shall record
the tender mercies of the Lord;
your faithfulness will I proclaim,
and every age shall know your name.
2 I sing of mercies that endure,
forever builded firm and sure,
of faithfulness that never dies,
established changeless in the skies.
3 Behold God's truth and grace displayed,
for he has faithful cov'nant made,
and he has sworn that David's Son
shall ever sit upon his throne:
4 "For him my mercy shall endure,
my cov'nant made with him is sure;
his throne and race I will maintain
forever, while the heav'ns remain."
5 Almighty God, your lofty throne
has justice for its cornerstone,
and shining bright before your face
are truth and love and boundless grace.
6 With blessing is the nation crowned
whose people know the joyful sound;
they in the light, O Lord, shall live,
the light your face and favor give.
7 Your name with gladness they confess,
exalted in your righteousness;
their fame and might to you belong,
for in your favor they are strong.
8 All glory unto God we yield,
Jehovah is our help and shield;
all praise and honor we will bring
to Israel's Holy One, our King.
