Gebaseerd op Psalm 103:8-14

De Heer is meelevend

De Heer is meelevend en genadig,
Hij blijft geduldig en groot is Zijn trouw.
Twisten doet Hij niet eindeloos,
Zijn toorn zal gaandeweg verdwijnen.

 1.Want zo hoog (zo hoog) als de hemel
zich uitspreidt boven ons,
zo groot (zo groot) is Zijn onwrikbare liefde
voor wie Hem vrezen. (refrein)

2. Zo ver (zo ver) als het oosten
van het westen vandaan is,
zo ver (zo ver) heeft Hij onze
zonden van ons verwijderd. (refrein)

3. Net zoals (zoals) een vader
zich ontfermd over zijn kind,
zo ontfermd (ontfermd) Zich de Vader
liefdevol over wie Hem vrezen. (refrein)


Literal translation of The Lord Is Compassionate:

The Lord is sympathetic/compassionate and gracious,
He remains patient and great is His faithfulness.
He does not quarrel endlessly,
His anger will gradually disappear.

1. For as high (as high) as the heaven
expands itself above us,
so great (so great) is His unwavering/steadfast love
for those who fear Him. (chorus)

2. As far (as far) as the east
is from the west,
so far (so far) has He removed
our sins from us.

3. Just as (as) a father
takes care of his child,
that is how the Father lovingly cares (cares)
for those who fear Him. (chorus)
