Hymn/Song Information

Where is my God does he retire Beyond the reach of




Where is my God? does he retire,
Beyond the reach of humble sighs?
Are these weak breathings of desire,
Too languid to ascend the skies?


No, Lord, my breathings of desire,
My weak petitions, if sincere.
Are not forbidden to aspire,
But reach to thy all-gracious ear.


Look up, my soul, with cheerful eye,
See where the great Redeemer stands.
The glorious Advocate on high.
With precious incense in his hands!


He sweetens every humble groan,
He recommends each broken prayer;
The softest call before his throne,
May rise, and find acceptance there.


Teach my weak heart, O gracious Lord,
With stronger faith to call thee mine;
Bid me pronounce the blissful word.
My Father, God, with joy divine.


---Alternative verses---


He sweetens every humble groan,
He recommends each broken prayer; 
Recline thy hope on him alone, 
Whose power and love forbid despair. 


He smiles on every humble groan,
He recommends each broken prayer;
Recline thy hope on him alone,
Whose power and love forbid despair.
