O Lord, I Would Delight in Thee
Music by Henry Hiles
Lyrics by 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.
