Search For A Song
O God, You Are My God Alone
- O God, you are my God alone;
with eagerness I seek your face.
My soul and body thirst for you,
as in a dry and weary place.
- I’ve seen you in your holy place;
your pow’r and glory held my gaze.
Your love is better far than life,
and thus my lips will sing your praise.
- I bless you, Lord, throughout my life
and raise my hands to you in prayer.
My joyful lips will sing your praise;
my soul is fed with richest fare.
- I lie awake upon my bed,
rememb’ring you before it’s light;
on you, my God, I meditate,
throughout the watches of the night.
- For you have been my help, O God;
I sing for joy beneath your wings.
Your right hand holds and strengthens me;
to you my soul for safety clings.
- But those who seek to kill my soul
to depths of earth shall fall away;
a sword of pow’r will bring them down,
and they shall be the jackal’s prey.
- The king will then rejoice in God,
and all who swear by him exult;
but God will stop the liars’ mouths,
the ones who utter what is false.
