O Lord, My God, Most Earnestly
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
