The Lord is close

Psalm 144

  • Refrain:
    The Lord is close to all who call, alleluia.
    The Lord is close to all who call, alleluia.
  1. I will bless you day after day,
    and praise your holy name.
    The Lord is good, the Lord is just,
    God's greatness is without end!
  2. The Lord is full of compassion,
    abounding in love,
    slow to anger, swift for forgive
    to all who sing God's praise.
  3. The Lord is just in all deeds,
    the Lord keeps faith for ever.
    The Lord is close to all who call,
    all who call from their hearts.
