This is the meter for such hymns as "Be Still, My Soul"
1. Your mer-cy, Lord, reach-es up to the heav-ens;
Your faith-ful-ness ex-tends up to the clouds.
Your right-eous-ness is tow-ering like the moun-tains;
Your just-ice is like the depths of the sea.
Hu-man and an-i-mal you save, O Lord.
How pre-cious is your stead-fast love, O God.
2. Peo-ple find shel-ter in your wings' great shad-ow.
They feast up-on th' a-bun-dance of your house,
And they drink from the riv-er of your good-ness,
For with you is the fount and source of life.
In your light we see light. Love and sal-va-tion
Con-tin-ue to the just ones who know you.
