#277: O Thou, In Whose Presence

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)


O Thou, in whose presence my soul takes delight.

On whom in affliction I call,

My comfort by day and my song in the night,

My hope, my salvation, my all:


Where dost Thou, dear Shepherd, resort with Thy sheep,

To feed them in pastures of love? Say, why in the valley of death should I weep,

Or alone in this wilderness rove?


O why should I wander, an alien from Thee,

Or cry in the desert for bread?

Thy fears will rejoice when my sorrows they see,

And smile at the tears I tears I have shed.


He looks and tent thousand off angel rejoice,

And myriads wait for His word;

He speaks and eternity, filled with His voice,

Re-echoes the praise of the Lord.


Dear Sbepherd! I hear, and will follow Thy call,

I know the sweet sound of Thy voice;

Restore and defend me, for Thou art my all,

And in Thee I will ever rejoice.
