PSALM 145:8-14
METER:  CM (86 86)
This is the same meter as such hymns as "O For a Thousand Tongues to Sing."

1.  The Lord is kind and mer-ci-ful,
    Gra-cious and slow to wrath.
    The Lord is good to all, and he
    Has mer-cy on his works.
2.  All of your works shall praise you, Lord,
    Your faith-ful bless your name.
    They speak your roy-al maj-es-ty,
    And of your ho-ly might.
3.  They tell all peo-ple of your might,
    The glo-ry of your reign.
    You reign, O Lord, for-ev-er-more,
    For-ev-er with-out end.
4.  The Lord is faith-ful in his words,
    And gra-cious in his deeds.
    The Lord up-holds all those who fall,
    And rais-es those bowed down.
