11. O Lord, My God, Most Earnestly

1. O Lord, my God, most earnestly
My heart would seek thy face,
Within thy holy house once more
To see thy glorious grace.

2.Apart from thee I long and thirst,
And nought can satisfy;
I wander in a desert land
Where all the streams are dry.

3. The loving-kindness of my God
Is more than life to me;
So I will bless thee while I live
And lift my prayer to thee.

4. In thee my soul is satisfied,
My darkness turns to light;
And joyful meditations fill
The watches of the night.

5. My Saviour, 'neath thy sheltering wings
My soul delights to dwell;
Still closer to thy side I press,
For near thee all is well.
