366. My Hope, my All, my Saviour Thou!

1 My Hope, my All, my Saviour Thou!
To Thee, O Lord, my soul I bow.
I seek the bliss Thy wounds impart,
I long to find Thee in my heart.

2 Be Thou my Strength, be Thou my Way,
Protect me through my life's short day;
In all my acts may wisdom guide,
And keep me, Saviour, near Thy side,

3 Correct, reprove, and comfort me;
As I have need, my Saviour be:
And if I would from Thee depart,
Then clasp me, Saviour, to Thy heart.

4 In fierce temptation's darkest hour,
Save me from sin and Satan's power;
Tear every idol from Thy throne,
And reign, my Saviour, reign alone.
