I love to be alone with God

Full Text

1 I love to be alone with God,
And to listen to His loving voice;
As He bids my ev'ry care depart,
How His presence makes my heart rejoice!

Chorus:
Alone with God, (Alone with God,)
No other friend so dear,
Alone with God (Alone with God,)
What joy when He is near!
My heart with rapture thrills
My cup of blessing fills,
When all alone with God.
(When all alone with God.)

2 I tell Him of my doubts and fears,
And He stills the tempest in my breast,
Bids the raging storms of passion cease,
Calms my anxious tho't with quiet rest. [Chorus]

3 I tell Him of my weaknesses,
Of my sins, my hopes, my fond desires;
And He cheers my heart to onward press
To gain the goal my soul aspires. [Chorus]

4 Then let me never seek to know
Sweeter friendship than with Him I find,
As I choose the quiet hours with Him,
Leaving all the busty world behind. [Chorus]
