Composer’s Foreword

I am not good in notes, but from the local church trainings while in choir, I have come around with this hymn using another hymn. If you know the hymn beneath, then you can join me to sing this song unto the Lord.

The Composed Song

1. The Lord hath heard ‘ven my voice

Yea he heard my supplications

Even when I call ‘to him

For our God is merciful


2. His ears hath he ‘nclined to me

When sorrows of death compassed me

And pains of hell grip me up

For our God is merciful


3. In my distress I called thee

Beseechin’ thee to deliver me

And thou hath been gracious to me

For our God is merciful


4. When I was even brought low

Thou hath been my very help

And hath lifted my head up

For our God is merciful


5. From death thou hath ‘ven saved me

You wiped tears of my eyes off

My feet you pr’vent from falling

For our God is merciful


6. How can I repay you Lord

This I will continue to do

Walking before you always

For our God is merciful


7. Though all men ‘ven be liars

Yet your word is “yea” and “amen”

I ‘ll always cleave to thy word

For our God is merciful


8. My vows I ‘ll take to thy house

Before thy people I ‘ll pay it

In large place you ‘ve answered me

For our God is merciful


9. You are a caring father

As long as am even on earth

Will I keep calling your name

For our God is merciful
