176. O God, my God, my all thou art

1 O God, my God, my all thou art,
Ere shines the dawn of rising day,
Thy sovereign light within my heart
Thine all enlive...
Thine all enliv'ning pow'r display.

2 In blessing thee with grateful songs,
My happy life shall glide away,
The praise, that to thy Name belongs,
Hourly with...
Hourly with lifted hands I'll pay.

3 Abundant sweetness, while I sing
Thy love, my ravish'd soul o'erflows.
Secure in thee, my God and king,
Of glory that...
Of glory that no period knows.

4 Thy name, O Lord, upon my bed,
Dwells on my lips and fires my thought.
With trembling awe in midnight shade,
I muse on all...
I muse on all thine hands have wrought.

4 In all I do I feel thine aid.
Therefore thy greatness will I sing,
O God, who didst my heart be glad,
Beneath the shadow...
Beneath the shadow of thy wing.
