THE PRESENCE OF GOD




My God, the Spring of all my joys,
The Life of my delights,
The Glory of my brightest days,
And Comfort of my nights.


In darkest shades if He appear,
My dawning is begun;
He is my soulís sweet morning star,
And He my rising sun.


The opening heavens around me shine,
With beams of sacred bliss,
While Jesus shows His heart is mine,
And whispers, I am His.


My soul would leave this heavy clay,
At that transporting word,
Run up with joy the shining way
To embrace my dearest Lord.


Fearless of hell and ghastly death,
Iíd break through every foe;
The wings of love and arms of faith
Should bear me conqueror through.


---Alternative verses---


In darkest shades if He appear,
My dawning is begun;
Thou art my soulís bright morning star,
And Thou my rising sun.


The opening heavens around me shine,
With beams of sacred bliss,
If Jesus shows His mercy mine,
And whispers, I am His.


My soul would leave this heavy clay,
At that transporting word,
Run up with joy the shining way
To meet my dearest Lord.


Fearless of hell and ghastly death,
Iíd break through every foe;
The wings of love and arms of faith
Would bear me conqueror through.
