1 O God, thou art my only God,
2 My Saviour and my King,
3 Early thy face, O Lord, I seek,
4 Thy praise I strive to sing.
5 My fainting soul, when parch'd with thirst,
6 To thee looks up for aid;
7 My wearied flesh by barren lands
8 And drought is sore dismay'd.
9 Thus have I sought my heav'nly King
10 In holiness to see;
11 Oh, let my soul confess thy power,
12 And glory still in thee.
[Page 113]
13 Far better than the life itself
14 Thy kindness do I prize,
15 My lips thy praises shall rehearse
16 For ever on this wise.
17 For ever magnify my God,
18 And still record his fame,
19 My hands while I have life, lift up
20 In honour of his name.
21 Thus shall my soul be satisfied,
22 Even as with daintiest meat,
23 When I with joyful lips thy praise
24 For evermore repeat.
