Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Let thy sweet mercies also come

Let thy sweet mercies also come

Tune: SARAH (Gabriel)
Published in 5 hymnals

Representative Text

41 Let thy sweet mercies also come
and visit me, O Lord;
Ev’n thy benign salvation,
according to thy word.

42 So shall I have wherewith I may
give him an answer just,
Who spitefully reproacheth me;
for in thy word I trust.

43 The word of truth out of my mouth
take thou not utterly;
For on thy judgments righteous
my hope doth still rely.

44 So shall I keep for evermore
thy law continually.
45 And, sith that I thy precepts seek,
I’ll walk at liberty.

46 I’ll speak thy word to kings, and I
with shame shall not be mov’d;
47 And will delight myself always
in thy laws, which I lov’d.

48 To thy commandments, which I lov’d,
my hands lift up I will;
And I will also meditate
upon thy statutes still.
