1 The mercies of my God and King
My tongue shall still pursue:
O happy they who, while they sing
Those mercies, share them too!
2 As bright and lasting as the sun,
As lofty as the sky,
From age to age Thy truth shall run,
And chance and change defy.
3 The covenant of the King of kings
Shall stand for ever sure;
And ’neath the shadow of Thy wings
Thy saints repose secure.
4 Thine is the earth, and Thine the skies,
Created at Thy will:
The waves at Thy command arise,
At Thy command are still.
5 In earth below, in Heav’n above,
Who, who is Lord like Thee?
O spread the Gospel of Thy love
Till all Thy glories see.
