“I will sing of mercy and judgement.” Ps. 101. 1

J. Hart            S.M.

1
Thy mercy, Lord, we praise;
 Of judgment too we sing;
 For all the riches of thy grace
 Our grateful tribute bring.

2
Mercy may justly claim
 A sinner’s thankful voice;
 And judgment joining in the theme,
 We tremble and rejoice.

3
Thy mercies bid us trust;
 Thy judgments strike with awe;
 We fear the last, we bless the first,
 And love thy righteous law.

4
Who can thy acts express,
 Or trace thy wondrous ways?
 How glorious is thy holiness;
 How terrible thy praise!

5
Thy goodness how immense
 To those that fear thy name!
 Thy love surpasses thought or sense,
 And always is the same.

6
Thy judgments are too deep
 For reason’s line to sound.
 Thy tender mercies to thy sheep
 No bottom know, nor bound.
