1Thy ceaseless, unexhausted love,
Unmerited and free,
Delights our evil to remove,
And help our misery.
2Thou waitest to be gracious still;
Thou dost with sinners bear;
That, saved, we may Thy goodness feel,
And all Thy grace declare.
3Thy goodness and Thy truth to me,
To every soul, abound;
A vast, unfathomable sea,
Where all our thoughts are drowned.
4Its streams the whole creation reach,
So plenteous is the store,
Enough for all, enough for each,
Enough forevermore.
5Throughout the universe it reigns,
Unalterably sure;
And while the truth of God remains,
The goodness must endure. Amen.
Exodus34:6,76 And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth, 7 Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.
Psalm100:5For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
Isaiah30:18And therefore will the LORD wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for the LORD is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him.
John15:13Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
