39. Thee Will I Love

1 Thee will I love, my strength, my tow'r;
Thee I adore my joy, my crown,
Thee will I love with all my pow'r,
I love Thy name, and Thine alone;
Thee will I love, till Holy Ghost fire
Fill all my soul with pure desire.

2 In darkness foolishly I strayed,
I sought Thee, yet from Thee I roved,
Too long my selfish thoughts obeyed
The creature more than Thee I loved;
But now Thy truth at last I see,
'Tis by Thy light it leadeth me.

3 I thank Thee, O Thou Righteous Sun,
For Thy bright beams on me have shined;
Thou hast the Tempter overthrown
My woes, removed and healed my mind;
I thank Thee for Thy quick'ning voice
Bids my poor heart in Thee rejoice.

4 Thee will I love, my joy, my crown;
Thee I adore my Lord my God;
Thee will I love beneath Thy frown
I see Thy smile Thy shepherd's rod;
Let good and kindred pass away;
With Thee I'll dwell in endless day!
