O Lord, My God, Most Earnestly

  1. O Lord, my God, most earnestly
    my heart would seek thy face,
    within thy holy house once more
    to see thy glorious grace.
    Apart from thee I long and thirst,
    and nought can satisfy;
    I wander in a desert land
    where all the streams are dry.
  2. The loving-kindness of my God
    is more than life to me;
    so I will bless thee while I live
    and lift my pray’r to thee.
    In thee my soul is satisfied,
    my darkness turns to light,
    and joyful meditations fill
    the watches of the night.
  3. My Savior, ’neath thy shelt’ring wings
    my soul delights to dwell;
    still closer to thy side I press,
    for near thee all is well.
    My soul shall conquer ev’ry foe,
    upholden by thy hand;
    thy people shall rejoice in God,
    thy saints in glory stand.
