The Lord our God most gracious is,
Compassion He delights to show;
In mercy He is plenteous,
But unto wrath and anger slow.
Good unto all men is the Lord;
Over all His works His mercy is.
Thy works all praise to Thee afford;
Thy saints,O Lord, Thy name shall bless.
The glory of Thy kingdom show
Shall they, and of Thy power tell !
That so men's sons his deeds may know
His kingdom's grace that doth excel.
Thy kingdom hath none end at all
It doth through ages all remain;
The Lord upholdeth all that fall,
The cast down raiseth up again.
