LAMENTATIONS 3:23-33
METER:  CM (86 86)
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.
