38. O God, My Heart Hath Left This World

1 O God, my heart hath left this world;
Its joys are all as dross to me;
Since I have seen Thy wondrous love
My soul doth cling alone to Thee!

Christ is all this world to me;
Soon His glory I shall see;
And before I’d leave my Savior
I would give my life, and die!

2 Thou precious, living, loving Lord,
Who died for me on Calvary,
The love that wore for me the thorns
Hath won my heart away from me. [Refrain]

3 The pierced hands and bleeding side,
The blood sweat in Gethsemane,
The wand’ring sheep which Thou didst seek
Proclaim Thy love so full and free. [Refrain]

4 O Lord, fore’er to Thee I cling;
From hence Thou’rt all in all to me!
May I Thy pow’r and glory see
Till I shall rest in heav’n with Thee. [Refrain]
