Christ My Song - 2072
Sweet is thy mercy, Lord! - Mercy Sweet
(John S. B. Monsell/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
"Sweet is thy mercy." (Psalm 109,20)
2. My need and thy desires
are all in Christ complete,
thou hast the justice Truth requires,
and I thy mercy sweet.
3. Where'er thy Name is blessed,
where'er thy people meet,
there I delight in thee to rest
and find thy mercy sweet.
4. Light thou my weary way,
lead thou my wand'ring feet,
that while I stay on earth I may
still find thy mercy sweet.
5. Thus shall the heavenly host
hear all my songs repeat
to Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
my joy, thy mercy sweet!
