Representative Text

1 Thy ceaseless, unexhausted love,
unmerited and free,
delights our evil to remove,
and help our misery.

2 Thou waitest to be gracious still;

to ev'ry soul abound,
a vast, unfathomable sea,
where all our thoughts are drowned.

4 Its streams the whole creation reach,
so plenteous is the store,
enough for all, enough for each,

5 Faithful, O Lord, thy mercies are,
a rock that cannot move;
a thousand promises declare
thy constancy of love.

6 Throughout the universe it reigns,
unalterably sure;
and while the truth of God remains
the goodness must endure.
