1 O May my soul with thee unite!
And be thou, Saviour, mine:
Be thou my only soul's delight,
And make me ever thine.
2 Cause me to taste and feel thy love,
And know thee as thou art;
Thou art my riches from above,
And treasures of my heart.
3 Be thou my rock on which I build,
My tower and safe abode;
To thee I will submit and yield,
And pray to thee my God.
4 It is my fainting soul's desire,
Thy mercies to embrace;
May I obtain what I admire:
Thy love and pard'ning grace.
5 Could I possess thy blessed mind,
How happy should I be!
What joys and comforts wold I find,
To be espous'd to thee.
6 United by such heav'nly ties,
Would prove my greatest bliss!
And perfectly complete my joys,
And set my soul at peace.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #CCXC
