Christian Worship Clinging To God.
O Lord, thy heavenly grace impart,
And fix my frail, inconstant heart:
Henceforth my chief desire shall be
To dedicate myself to thee.
Whate’er pursuits my time employ,
One thought shall fill my soul with joy:
That silent, secret thought shall be,
That all my hopes are fixed on thee.
Thy glorious eye pervadeth space;
Thy presence, Lord, fills every place;
And wheresoe’er my lot may be,
Still shall my spirit cleave to thee.
Renouncing every earthly thing,
And safe beneath thy spreading wing,
My sweetest thought henceforth shall be,
That all I want I find in thee.
