411. Thy Presence, Lord, Hath Me Supplied

1 Thy presence, Lord, hath me supplied,
Thou my right hand support dost give;
Thou first shalt with Thy counsel guide,
And then to glory me receive.

2 Whom then in heav’n, but Thee alone,
Have I, whose favor I require?
Throughout the spacious earth there’s none,
Compar’d with Thee, that I desire.

3 My trembling flesh and aching heart
May often fail to succor me;
But God shall inward strength impart,
And my eternal portion be.
