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.

Thy loving kindness, Lord, I sing

Thy loving kindness, Lord, I sing

Tune: UXBRIDGE (Mason)
Published in 16 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Thy loving-kindness, Lord, I sing,
Of grace and life the sacred spring;—
In blood o’erflowing, rich and free,
In loving-kindness shed for me.

2 I to Thy mercy seat repair,
And find Thy loving-kindness there;
And when to Thy sweet Word I go,
Thy loving-kindness there I know.

3 Each evening from the world apart,
Thy loving-kindness cheers my heart;
And when the day salutes my eyes,
Thy loving-kindness doth arise.

4 Lord, from the moment of my birth,
I’ve nothing known but love on earth;
By day, by night, where’er I be,
Thy loving-kindness follows me.

5 From daily sin and daily woe,
Thy loving-kindness saves me now;
And I will praise, for sins forgiv’n,
Thy loving-kindness, all, in heav’n.
