Lord, I have made your word my choice,
my lasting heritage;
there shall my noblest powers rejoice,
my truest thoughts engage.
I'll read the histories of your love,
and keep your laws in sight;
your words and promises will prove
an ever fresh delight.
In your broad land of wealth unknown,
where springs of life arise;
the seeds of heavenly bliss are sown,
and hidden glory lies.
