SUGGESTED TUNE: AMAZING GRACE
1. New are God mer-cies ev-ery day,
Your faith-ful-ness is great;
I say, "My por-tion is the Lord,
And I will hope in him."
2. The Lord is good to those who wait,
To those who seek his face.
It's good to wait in qui-et trust
For God to come and save.
3. Though si-lent-ly we bear a yoke
Of suf-f'ring and dis-grace,
God won't re-ject us for all time,
Al-though we suf-fer grief.
4. To us God is com-pas-sion-ate
Be-cause of his great love;
God does not will-ing-ly af-flict
Or sad-den an-y-one.
