Original text and translations
Sweet is Thy mercy, Lord!
Before Thy mercy seat,
My soul adoring pleads Thy word,
And owns Thy mercy sweet.
Where'er Thy Name is blest,
Where'er Thy people meet,
There I delight in Thee to rest,
And find thy mercy sweet.
Light Thou our weary way,
Lead Thou my wand'ring feet;
That while we stay on earth
we may Still find Thy mercy sweet.
Thus shall the heav'nly host,
Hear all our songs repeat,
To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost;
Thy mercy sweet,
Our joy, Thy mercy sweet.
