PSALM 36:5-10
METER:  11 10 11 10 11 10
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.
