Excellent Exhortings

Tune: Luckington

('Let all the world in every corner sing')

Psalm 36 v.7-12


How excellent is your loving kindness

God, we confess

Therefore we mankind do

Put our full trust in you

'Neath shadow of your wings

We reside, each you brings

Praise worthy of your greatness, mercy

Your grace we see


We shall be abundantly satisfied

It not denied

With your fulness, you give

Salvation, so we live

And you shall make us drink

Of your river, we think

On you, partake river of your pleasures

They sure treasures


For with you Lord is the fountain of life

No human strife

And in your light we see

True light, shining clearly

Our way ahead, O guide

Us daily, do not hide

O continue your loving kindness to

Your people, do


And continue your righteousness to they

Who seek your way

To the upright in heart

Who follow you, each part

Let not pride nor wicked

Come to me, so misled

I would be, but you shall with evil deal

But work our weal* (*well-being)
