Representative Text

1 I will sing of the mercies of the Lord:
As the number of the sands upon the shore
Of a vast and mighty sea are his benefits to me,
And I will exalt his name forevermore.

Refrain:
I will sing of the mercies of the Lord,
Countless gifts from his dear hand my life has known;
And my grateful voice I raise unto Him in notes of praise,
As his tender loving kindness I would own.

2 I will sing of his rich, unbounded grace,
Which for sinful ones their costly ransom paid;
In the sacrificial tide flowing when my Savior died,
All my hope of everlasting life is staid. [Refrain]

3 I will sing of the blessings of his love,
On my spirit falling like refreshing dew;
I will sing of light divine glowing on this path of mine,
As, rejoicing, I my upward course pursue. [Refrain]

4 I will sing of the never-failing pow’r,
That secure from ev’ry harm doth guard my soul,
And will keep me till I stand safe upon the deathless strand
Where the armies of the blest their King extol. [Refrain]
