DELIGHT IN GOD'S HOUSE




The Lord, my Saviour, is my light;
What terrors can my soul affright?
While God, my strength. my life, is near,
What potent arms shall make me fear?


Should numírous foes besiege me round,
My steadfast heart no fear shall wound ;
Though war should rise in dread array,
God is my strength, my hope, my stay.


This only gift my heart desires,
For this my ardent wish aspires;
This will I seek with restless care,
íTill God attend my humble prayer.


In his own house to spend my days,
My life devoted to his praise:
There would my soul his beauties trace,
And learn the wonders of his grace.


Should evíry earthly friend depart,
And nature leave a parentís heart;
My God, on whom my hopes depend,
Will be my father and my friend.


Ye humble souls, in evíry strait,
On God with sacred courage wait;
His hands shall life and strength afford,
Ye trembling saints, wait on the Lord.
