Words from the Scottish Psalter (1650), of The Church of Scotland; based on Psalm 36

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

1.  Thy mercy, Lord, is in the heavens;

thy truth doth reach the clouds;

thy justice is like mountains great,

thy judgements deep as floods.

2.  Lord, thou preservest man and beast:

how precious is thy grace!

Therefore in shadow of thy wings

men’s sons their trust shall place.

3.  Their hunger thou shalt satisfy

with good things from thy store:

from rivers of thy pleasures they

shall drink and thirst no more.

4.  With thee the fountain is of life

and from thy presence flows;

and brightens from thy dwelling place

out to all people goes.
