Hymn/Song Information

HAPPINESS IN GOD ONLY




In search of happiness,
Long had I toiled in vain;
Those things which seemed to promise ease,
But added to my pain.


Ye transient scenes, adieu,
Delusive joys, be gone!
That rest I cannot find in you,
Iíll seek in God alone.


Could I obtain a glimpse
Of his paternal love,
It would fulfil my every wish,
My sorrows all remove.


His arms spread underneath,
Chase all my fears away;
I am no longer Satanís slave,
Not shall I be his prey.


God is my light, my life,
My portion and my all;
While he is mine, no good I want
No evil can befall.
