GOD ALL AND IN ALL




My God, My Life, My Love
To thee, to thee I call;
I can not live if thou remove,
For thou art all in all.


Thy shining grace can cheer
This dungeon where I dwell:
'Tis paradise when thou art here;
If thou depart, 'tis hell.


The smilings of thy face,
How amiable they are!
'Tis heaven to rest in thy embrace,
And nowhere else but there.


To thee, and thee alone,
The angles owe their bliss;
They sit around thy gracious throne,
And dwell where Jesus is.


Not all the harps above
Can make a heavenly place,
If God his residence remove,
Or but conceal his face.


Nor earth, nor all the sky.
Can one delight afford;
No, not a drop of real joy
Without thy presence, Lord.


Thou art the sea of love
Where all my pleasures roll,
The circle where my passions move,
And centre of my soul.


To thee my spirits fly
With infinite desire;
And yet how far from thee I lie!
Dear Jesus, raise me higher.
