To the immortal soul can e’er be given;
O, let Thy kingdom now within me come,
And as above, so here, Thy will be done!

My heaven in Thee, O Father, let me find—
My heaven in Thee, within a heart resigned;
No more, of heaven and bliss, my soul, despair,
For where my God is found, my heaven is there.
