Lord, thee my God, I'll early seek

Representative Text

1 Lord, thee my God I early seek,
My soul doth thirst for thee;
My flesh longs in a dry parched land,
Where in no waters be;
That I thy power may behold,
And brightness of thy face,
As I have seen thee heretofore,
Within thy holy place.

Refrain:
In the shadow of thy wings, of thy wings,
In the shadow of thy wings I’ll joy.

2 Since better is thy love than life,
My lips thee praise shall give;
I in thy name will lift my hands
And bless thee while I live.
As when with fatness well supplied,
My soul enriched shall be;
Then shall my mouth with joyful lips
Sing praises unto thee. [Refrain]

3 When I do thee upon my bed
Remember with delight,
And when on thee I meditate
In watches of the night;
In shadow of thy wings I’ll joy,
For thou my help hast been;
To thee my soul clings fast, and me
Thy right hand doth sustain. [Refrain]
