1 Lord, to whom except to Thee
Shall our wandering spirits go,
Thee Whom it is light to see,
And eternal life to know?

2 Lord, to whom except to Thee
Shall we go when ills betide?
Who except Thyself can be
Hope and help and strength and guide?

3 Who can cleanse the soul from sin,
Hear the prayer, and seal the vow?
Who can fill the void within,
Blessèd Saviour, who but Thou?

4 Therefore evermore I'll give
Thanks and praise, my God, to Thee;
Evermore in Thee I live,
Evermore live Thou in me.

Amen.
