Scripture Verse

Let Thy mercies come also unto me, O Lord, even Thy salvation, according to Thy Word. So shall I have wherewith to answer him that reproacheth me: for I trust in Thy Word. Psalm 119:41–42


Charles H. Gabriel

Words: From The Psal­ter (Pitts­burgh, Penn­syl­van­ia: Unit­ed Pres­by­te­ri­an Board of Pub­li­ca­tion, 1912), num­ber 326.

Music: Sar­ah (Ga­bri­el) Charles H. Ga­bri­el, 1901 (🔊 pdf nwc).


Thy promised mercies send to me,
Thy great salvation, Lord;
So shall I answer those who scoff:
My trust is Thy Word.

My hope is in Thy judgment, Lord;
Take not Thy truth from me;
And in Thy law forevermore
My daily walk shall be.

And I will walk at liberty
Because Thy truth I seek;
Thy truth before the kings of earth
With boldness I will speak.

The Lord’s commands, which I have loved,
Shall still new joy impart;
With reverence I will hear Thy laws
And keep them in my heart.
