CLXI. Thy ceaseless, unexhausted love

1 Thy ceaseless, unexhausted Love,
Unmerited and free,
Delights our evil to remove,
And help our misery.

2 Thou waitest to be gracious still;
Thou dost with sinners bear;
That, sav'd, we may thy goodness feel,
And all thy grace declare.

3 Thy goodness and thy truth, to me,
To ev'ry soul abound;
A vast unfathomable sea,
Where all our thoughts are drown'd.

4 Its streams the whole creation reach,
So plent'ous is the store;
Enough for all, enough for each,
Enough for evermore.

5 Faithful, O Lord, thy mercies are,
A rock which cannot move:
A thousand promises declare
Thy constancy of love!

6 Throughout the universe it reigns,
Unalterably sure;
And while the truth of God remains,
His goodness must endure.
