16A. When in the Night I Meditate

1 When in the night I meditate
on mercies multiplied,
my grateful heart inspires my tongue
to bless the LORD, my guide.

2 Forever in my thought the LORD
before my face shall stand;
secure, unmoved, I shall remain,
with God at my right hand.

3 My inmost being thrills with joy
and gladness fills my breast;
because on him my trust is stayed,
my flesh in hope shall rest.

4 I know that I shall not be left
forgotten in the grave,
and from corruption, thou, O LORD,
thy holy one will save.

5 The path of life thou showest me;
of joy a boundless store
is ever found at thy right hand,
and pleasures evermore.
