22 It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. 23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. 24 The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. 25 The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. 26 It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD. 27 It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth. 28 He sitteth alone and keepeth silence, because he hath borne it upon him. 29 He putteth his mouth in the dust; if so be there may be hope. 30 He giveth his cheek to him that smiteth him: he is filled full with reproach. 31 For the Lord will not cast off for ever: 32 But though he cause grief, yet will he have compassion according to the multitude of his mercies.(KJV)

1. When all Thy mercies, O my God, 
My rising soul surveys, 
Transported with the view, I’m lost 
In wonder, love, and praise. 

2. Ten thousand thousand precious gifts 
My daily thanks employ; 
Nor is the least a cheerful heart 
That tastes those gifts with joy. 

3. Through every period of my life 
Thy goodness I’ll pursue 
And after death, in distant worlds, 
The glorious theme renew. 

4. When nature fails, and day and night 
Divide Thy works no more, 
My ever grateful heart, O Lord, 
Thy mercies shall adore. 

5. Through all eternity to Thee 
A joyful song I’ll raise; 
But, oh! eternity’s too short 
To utter all Thy praise.
