His Lovingkindness

Ben Zornes

Verse 1
Awake, my soul, in joy filled grace, and sing thy great Redeemer's praise
He justly claims a song from me; His lovingkindness, O how free
He saw me ruined in the fall, yet loved me notwithstanding all
He saved me from my lost estate; His lovingkindness, O... how great

Verse 2
Through numerous hosts of mighty foes, though earth and hell my way oppose
He safely leads my soul along; His lovingkindness, O how strong
When trouble like a gloomy cloud, has gathered thick and thundered loud
He near my soul has always stood; His lovingkindness, O... how good

His lovingkindness, His lovingkindness
How measureless and O how sweet
His lovingkindness, His lovingkindness
How measureless and O... how sweet

Verse 3
Often I feel my sinful heart prone from my Savior to depart
But though I have him oft forgot, His lovingkindness changes not
Soon shall I pass the gloomy vale; soon all my mortal powers must fail
O may my last expiring breath His lovingkindness sing... in death

Then let me mount and soar away to the bright world of endless day
And sing with rapture and surprise, His lovingkindness in... the skies
