804. My Song Forever Shall Record

1 My song forever shall record
your tender mercies, O my God,
your faithfulness will I proclaim,
and every age shall know your name.
I sing of mercies that endure,
of faithfulness forever sure.

2 Almighty God, your lofty throne
has justice for its cornerstone;
and shining bright before your face
are truth and love and boundless grace.
The heavens shall join in glad accord
to praise your wondrous work and word.

3 The swelling sea obeys your will;
its angry waves your voice can still.
And yours, by right, the heavens and earth,
the world in life, in death, in birth.
The whole creation’s wondrous frame
proclaims its Maker’s glorious name.

4 With blessing is the nation crowned
whose people know the joyful sound;
they in the light, O God, shall live,
the light your face and favour give.
All glory unto God we yield,
who is our constant help and shield.
