8 Jehovah very gracious is,
in him compassions flow;
in mercy he is very great,
and is to anger slow.
9 The Lord most bountiful extends
his goodness unto all:
and over all that he hath made
his tender mercies are.
10 Thee all thy works shall praise, O Lord,
and thee thy saints shall bless;
11 they shall thy kingdom’s glory show,
thy power by speech express:
12 To make the sons of men to know
his acts done mightily,
And of his kingdom excellent
the glorious majesty.
13 Thy kingdom shall endure for aye
thy reign through ages all.
14 God raiseth all that are bowed down,
upholdeth all that fall.
15 The eyes of all things wait on thee,
the giver of all good;
and thou in time convenient dost,
bestow on them their food.
16 Thy bounteous hand thou openest,
and dost in kindness give
enough to satisfy the wants
of all on earth that live.
