1 God of my mercy and my praise!
Thy glory is my song;
Though sinners speak against thy grace
With a blaspheming tongue.
2 When in the form of mortal man
Thy Son on earth was found,
With cruel slanders, false and vain,
They compass'd him around.
3 Their mis'ries his compassion mov'd;
Their peace he still pursu'd;
They render'd hatred for his love,
And evil for his good.
4 Their malice rag'd without a cause;
Yet with his dying breath
He pray'd for murd'rers on his cross,
And bless'd his foes in death.
5 O may his conduct, all-divine,
To me a model prove!
Like his, O God! my heart incline
My enemies to love.
