Original text and translations
1. Thy mercy, Jehovah, is in the heavens:
thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds.
Thy righteousness standeth like as the strong mountains,
thy judgements are a great deep.
2. O Lord, thou preservest both man and beast:
how great is thy mercy, O Lord most high.
With thee is the fountain, the fountain of life;
and in thy light shall we see light.
