|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;
O'er all His works His mercy is.
Thy works all praise to Thee afford;
Thy saints, Oh 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.
