Representative Text

1 Lord, what is man, that child of pride,
That boasts his high degree?
If one poor moment he be left,
He sinks, and where is he?

2 In Thee I live, and move, and am;
Thou deal'st me out my days;
As Thou renew'st my being, Lord,
Let me renew Thy praise.

3 From Thee I am, through Thee I am,
And for Thee I must be;
'Tis better for me not to live
Than not to live to Thee.

4 My God, Thou art my glorious Sun,
Bu whose bright beams I shine:
As Thou, Lord, ever art with me,
Let me be ever Thine.

5 Thou art my living Fountain, Lord,
Whose streams on me do flow;
Myself I render unto Thee,
To whom myself I owe.

6 As Thou, Lord, an immortal soul
Hast breath├ęd into me;
So let my soul be breathing forth
Immortal thanks to Thee.
