Lyrics

O Lord, I Would Delight in Thee

Lyrics: John Ryland
Composer: Peter B. Allen

O Lord, I would delight in Thee,
And on Thy care depend;
To Thee in ev’ry 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, wheree’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.

Henceforth my great concern shall be
To love and praise Thee more.
O Lord, I would delight in Thee,
And on Thy care depend;
To Thee in every trouble flee,
My best in 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, wherever 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 Three
I triumph and adore;
Henceforth my great concern shall be
To love and praise Thee more.

Henceforth my great concern shall be
To love and praise Thee more.
