I love the LORD because he heard my voice
when I wept endless tears for Mercy’s touch.
Steadfast, faithful to his promise he
took hold of me and shielded me from death.
He promised if I turned to him in pain
He’d pour his loving-kindness on my wounds.
And now, I’ve tested this and can proclaim
He brings redemption to a spirit slain
by the broken patterns of this world.
Because His love is all the food I need,
I’ll call on Him as long as I shall live.
So now, return, my soul, unto your rest.
A gracious God has clasped you to his breast.
