Hymn #37: O God, thou art my God alone

Change to large font

1. O God, thou art my God alone;
early to thee my soul shall cry,
a pilgrim in a land unknown,
a thirsty land whose springs are dry.

2. Yet through this rough and thorny maze
I follow hard on thee, my God;
thy hand unseen up holds my ways;
I safely tread where thou hast trod.

3. Thee in the watches of the night
when I remember on my bed,
thy presence makes the darkness light;
thy guardian wings are round my head.

4. Better than life itself, thy love,
dearer than all beside to me,
for whom have I in heaven above,
or what on earth, compared with thee?

5. Praise with my heart, my mind, my voice,
for all thy mercy I will give;
my soul shall still in God rejoice;
my tongue shall bless thee while I live.
