The Name of the Lord. Exod. 33. 19; 34. 6

W. Gadsby   S.M.

1
The Lord proclaims his name;
And sinners hear his voice;
His mercy ever stands the same,
And we’ll in him rejoice.

2
His name is gracious still,
And freely he bestows
The bounty of his sovereign will,
On all who feel their woes.

3
His patience long endures,
And savèd sinners know,
A God, long-suffering, still restores
Their joy and peace below.

4
The thousands whom he loves
He pardons and forgives,
Their persons he in Christ approves,
And will while Jesus lives.

5
Lord, help us to believe,
And make thy name our choice;
Thy mercy freely to us give,
And we’ll in thee rejoice.
