Sweet is Thy mercy, Lord!
Before Thy mercy seat,
My soul adoring pleads Thy word,
And owns Thy mercy sweet.

Where'er Thy Name is blest,
Where'er Thy people meet,
There I delight in Thee to rest,
And find thy mercy sweet.

Light Thou our weary way,
Lead Thou my wand'ring feet;
That while we stay on earth
we may Still find Thy mercy sweet.

Thus shall the heav'nly host,
Hear all our songs repeat,
To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost;
Thy mercy sweet,

Our joy, Thy mercy sweet.
