W.H. Monk (1823-1889)
Thy lovingkindness, Lord, is good and free,|
In tender mercy turn Thou unto me;
Hide not Thy face from me in my distress,
In mercy hear my prayer, Thy servant bless.
Needy and sorrowful, to Thee I cry;|
Let Thy salvation set my soul on high;
Then I will sing and praise Thy holy Name,
My thankful song Thy mercy shall proclaim.
With joy the meek shall see my soul restored,|
Your heart shall live, ye saints that seek the Lord;
He helps the needy and regards their cries,
Those in distress the Lord will not despise.
Let heaven above His grace and glory tell,|
Let earth and sea and all that in them dwell;
Salvation to His people God will give,
And they that love His Name with Him shall live.
