I will sing your mercies, Lord

I will sing your mercies, Lord,
how you heard and answered prayer:
foes disarmed and fears relieved—
you have lifted my despair.

2. Your displeasure swiftly fades,
even when your anger burns;
though the night is full of tears,
with the dawn our joy returns.

3. I have tasted both extremes,
confidence and deep dismay:
from your strength, security;
from your silence, disarray.

4. In profound distress I prayed:
‘Gracious God, prolong my days—
can the grave extol your name?
Let me live, and sing your praise!’

5. Then my grief was turned to joy;
then my laughter was restored—
one unending song of thanks
I will bring to you, my LORD.

(BASED ON PSALM 30)
