You long to be gracious, You long to show justice,
How can you hold back your wrath from your people?
Your zeal is matched by no other, You rise to show compassion,
How gracious you are when we cry for help,
As soon as you hear us you answer.
Oh Lord, who dwells on high, forever be exalted,
Exalted and lifted up.
We long to see you, the King, in all Your beauty.
You are our foundation in uncertain times.
You are our judge, our lawgiver, our one and only King.
You made the heavens and the earth, You are God our all.
Your word stands forever.
Lord you come with sovereignty and power,
You tend Your flock like a shepherd,
You gather the lambs in your arms and carry them close to Your heart.
You lead us gently, Oh Lord, who is like you?
You sit enthroned above the circle of the earth,
You stretch over heaven like a canopy.
Oh Creator of the ends of the earth, you are everlasting, No beginning and no end.
You will never grow tired or weary,
You give strength to the weary, and increase the power of the weak.
Who can even begin to fathom all that You are?
You have chosen us and not rejected us.
You will strengthen us and uphold us with Your right hand,
You yourself help us, You will answer us, You will not forsake us.
You, Oh Lord, will not give Your glory or praise to idols,
Glory and praise are Yours rightly due.
You made a dry path through the sea,
You are making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.
You are the one who blots out our transgressions and remembers our sins no more.
You make us holy and blameless,
You who made us and forms us in the womb will surely help us.
Is there any God besides you? NO, there is no other, I know not one.
You have swept away our offenses like a cloud, Our sins like the morning mist.
Oh that we would rend our hearts and return to You.
You Lord speak truth and declare what is right,
You are a righteous God and Saviour.
In You alone are righteousness and strength.
You alone will sustain us, You have made us, You will carry us,
You will sustain and rescue us.
You are the Lord our God who teaches us what is best for us,
And who directs us in the way we should go.
Oh Lord you are faithful, you will not forget us!
You have engraved us on the palms of your hands.
