1 Thy mercy and Thy truth, O Lord,
Transcend the lofty sky;
Thy judgments are a mighty deep,
And as the mountains high.
2 Lord, Thou preservest man and beast;
Since Thou art ever kind,
Beneath the shadow of Thy wings
We may a refuge find.
3 With the abundance of Thy house
We shall be satisfied,
From rivers of unfailing joy
Our thirst shall be supplied.
4 The fountain of eternal life
Is found alone with Thee,
And it the brightness of Thy light
We clearly light shall see.
5 From those that know Thee may Thy love
And mercy ne'er depart,
And may Thy justice still protect
And bless the upright heart.
6 The workers of iniquity
Are fallen utterly;
They shall not triumph in their pride,
Or drive my soul from Thee.
The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
