Am……G.Am..Dm....Am.......G.....Am
Be   mer-ci- ful,   be     merci-   ful to me,

Am..G....Am..Dm..Am.....G........Am
O    God, for   I  my refuge take in Thee.

Am…….........G.Am....G..........Am..G..D.Am
Beneath Thy might-y    wings I'll seek protection

G..Am..G...Am............G..Am.......E.Am
Un-til    the storms pass by. To God I flee-

Am........G.....Am............D....Am....G....D.Am..D
To God Most High who charts my    life's di-rec-tion.

 
2.) 

He'll send from heav'n and save me as before,

Frustrating those who hound me evermore.

His steadfast love will comfort me in sorrows

Though I lie down amid the lions' roar,

Mid enemies with teeth like spears and arrows.

 

 
3.) 

O God, exalt Thyself above the skies!

Let over all the earth Thy glory rise!

My soul was grieved: where'er my way I wended

They set a snare, but to their great surprise

They fell into the pit for me intended.

 

 
4.) 

See how my heart is steadfast, O my God;

I'll make a melody unto Thy laud.

Awake, O harp and lyre! Awake, my spirit!

I'll rise at dawn Thy mercy to applaud,

To sing Thy praise that all mankind may hear it.

 

5.) 

Among the nations I will sing Thy praise

And give Thee thanks, for wondrous are Thy ways.

Unto the clouds extends Thy love unfailing;

Thy faithfulness outdistances our gaze.

Shine forth Thy glory, everywhere prevailing!
