Matter of Mercy


Tune: Herongate

('It is a thing most wonderful')

Psalm 123


Unto you lift I up my eyes

O Lord, come to us, hear our cries

You that do dwell in heavens above

Come help us with your comfort, love


Behold, as the eyes of servants

Look to hand of their masters hence

As eyes of maids look to mistress

For help when they are in distress


So our eyes look unto the Lord

We wait upon Him, hear His word

Wait until He have mercy on

Us, the Lord, the merciful one


Have mercy on us, Lord, we do

In our troubles call unto you

For we are filled exceedingly

With contempt of our scorners, see


They be as ease, and us revile

Contempt against us they compile

They be proud, boast in their own ways

But soon shall come their downfall days

          Showing mercy, is a kindness and a Christian thing to do. Your words today are meaningful Orchi.
