Let thy sweet mercies also come

Published in 6 hymnals

Representative Text


41 Let thy sweet mercies also come
and visit me, O Lord;
let thy salvation come to me,
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 righteous judgments still
doth all my hope rely.
44 So shall I keep for evermore
thy law continually.
45 Because I have thy precepts sought,
I’ll walk at liberty.

46 I’ll speak thy word to kings, and I
shall not be moved with shame;
47 and in thy laws I will delight,
for I have loved the same.
48 To thy commandments, which I loved,
my hands lift up I will;
and I will also meditate
upon thy statutes still.
