Lyrics: VERSE 1
The Lord is good to all, his tender mercy’s o’er his works.
One tiny sparrow falls, and God in heaven notices.
How precious then one soul?
The Lord is eager each to bless.
God’s blessings shall unfold to those who seek his righteousness.

Behold, this is man’s work: to keep God’s law in strength and might.
Walk faithfully on Earth and gain from him eternal life!
Choose God in deed and word; repent, obey with one accord.
Abundant flows his love, the tender mercies of the Lord.

CHORUS
Tender, tender are God’s mercies.
Be it sorrow, trial, or pain,
God delivers all who call in faith
Upon his holy name.

VERSE 2
Think well upon those times your mind sought counsel and support.
Did ye not comfort find? Did peace not come into your heart?
With strength beyond your own,
Exceeding all capacity,
Ye were not left alone, the Savior dre3w more close to thee.

How constant is his care: how sweet the blessing we receive,
To know that he is there, to know the Savior truly lives.
Each eye, behold his hand; each ear perceive his righteous word.
How marvelous, O man, the tender mercies of the Lord.

CHORUS
Tender, tender are God’s mercies.
Be it sorrow, trial, or pain,
God delivers all who call in faith
Upon his holy name.
