Hymn/Song Information

O Lord my God my portion thou and sure




O Lord, my God, my portion thou
and sure possession art;
Thy words I steadfastly resolve
to treasure in my heart.


With all the strength of warm desires
I did thy grace implore;
Disclose, according to thy word,
thy mercy's boundless store.


With due reflection and strict care
on all my ways I thought;
And so, reclaimed to thy just paths,
my wand'ring steps I brought.


I lost no time, but made great haste,
resolved without delay
To watch, that I might never more
from thy commandments stray.


Though num'rous troops of sinful men
to rob me have combined,
Yet I thy pure and righteous laws
have ever kept in mind.


In dead of night I will arise
to sing thy solemn praise;
Convinced how much I always ought
to love thy righteous ways.


To such as fear thy holy Name
myself I closely join;
To all who their obedient wills
to thy commands resign.


O'er all the earth thy mercy, Lord,
abundantly is shed;
O make me then exactly learn
thy sacred paths to tread.
