69B. Thy Lovingkindness, Lord, Is Good and Free

1 Thy lovingkindness, Lord, is good and free,
in tender mercy turn thou unto me;
hide not thy face from me in my distress,
in mercy hear my prayer, thy servant bless.

2 Needy and sorrowful, to thee I cry;
let thy salvation set my soul on high;
then I will sing and praise thy holy name,
my thankful song thy mercy shall proclaim.

3 With joy the meek shall see my soul restored,
your heart shall live, ye saints that seek the Lord;
he helps the needy and regards their cries,
those in distress the Lord will not despise.

4 Let heav'n above his grace and glory tell,
let earth and sea and all that in them dwell;
salvation to his people God will give,
and they that love his name with him shall live.
