The Lord is close

Psalm 144

  • Refrain:
    The Lord is close to all who call,
    call upon God's name.
  1. I will bless you day after day
    and praise your name for ever.
    The Lord is great, highly to be praised,
    God's greatness cannot be measured.
  2. The Lord is kind, full of compassion,
    slow to anger, abounding in love.
    O how good is the Lord to all,
    com-passionate to all creation.
  3. The Lord is just in all God's ways,
    loving in all God's deeds.
    God is close to all who call,
    call on God from their hearts
