36 (1)Psalm 36 Version 1LM
HIGH in the heavens, eternal God,
   Thy goodness in full glory shines;
Thy Truth shall break through every cloud
    That veils and darkens Thy designs.
2  For ever firm Thy justice stands,
    As mountains their foundations keep;
Wise are the wonders of Thy hands,
    Thy judgements are a mighty deep.
3  Thy providence is kind and large,
    Both man and beast Thy bounty share;
The whole creation is Thy charge,
    But saints are still Thy special care.
4  My God, how excellent Thy grace,
    From which our hopes and comforts spring!
The sons of Adam in distress
    Fly to the shadow of Thy wing.
5  From the provisions of Thy house
    We shall on Truth eternal dine;
Here mercy like a river flows,
    Bearing us pleasures all divine.
6  Life, like a fountain rich and free,
    Springs from the presence of the Lord;
And in Thy light our souls shall see
    The glories promised in Thy Word.
Isaac Watts, 1674-1748
