1 From pole too pole let others roam,
And search in vain for bliss;
My soul is satisfied at home;
The Lord my portion is.
2 Jesus, who on his glorious throne
Rules heaven and earth and sea,
Is pleased to claim me for his own,
And gives himself to me.
3 His person fixes all my love,
His blood removes my fear;
And while he pleads for me above,
His arm preserves me here.
4 His word of promise is my food,
His spirit is my guide;
Thus daily is my strength renewed,
And all my wants supplied.
5 For him I count as gain each loss,
Disgrace for him renown;
Well may I glory in my cross,
While he prepared my crown.
