DELIGHTING IN GOD




Whither, oh whither art thou gone,
Thou source of my delight!
Whose presence ushers in the day,
Whose absence forms the night.


Whither, oh whither art thou fled,
My Saviour and my God;
Oh tell me in what distant land,
Thou makest thine abode.


Where’er thou art, thou still canst hear,
The humble suppliant’s cry;
Shine on my soul, most gracious Lord,
Return, or I must die.


Then though my earthly friends may fail,
And worldly comforts flee;
Thy lovingkindness, oh my God,
Is more than these to me.
