Hymn 224 – “O Lord, I would delight…,”
Music: Henry Hiles;
Words: John Ryland.

O Lord, I would delight in Thee, 

And on Thy care depend; 

To Thee in every trouble flee, 

My best, my ever Friend. 

When all material streams are dried, 

Thy fullness is the same; 

May I with this be satisfied, 

And glory in Thy name.

All good, where’er it may be found, 

Its source doth find in Thee; 

I must have all things and abound, 

While God is God to me. 

O that I had a stronger faith, 

To look within the veil, 

To credit what my Saviour saith, 

Whose word can never fail.

He that has made my heaven secure, 

Will here all good provide; 

While Christ is rich, can I be poor? 

What can I want beside? 

O God, I cast my care on Thee; 

I triumph and adore; 

Henceforth my great concern shall be 

To love and praise Thee more.
