1 Of omnipresent grace I sing;
For, though I take the morning's wing
And dwell beyond the outer sea,
Yet Thou art present there with me.
2 Thy hand shall lead me by the way,
Thy right hand be my staff and stay;
Though darkness compass me around,
Night shall be light where Thou art found.
3 Where Thou art, darkness cannot stay,
Thou turnest darkness into day;
Both night and light are one to Thee:
In darkness Thou still seest me.
4 Thine eye beheld me yet unborn
And watched my steps from earliest morn;
My ways are written in Thy book:
By Thee I live, to Thee I look. A-Men.
5 Thy thoughts are precious to my heart;
Thy presence bids all care depart;
I lay me down, Thou art with me;
I wake-- and still I am with Thee.
6 Lord, try my way and me anew;
Prove Thou my heart and make it true
And lead me in the better way
To life, to Thee--for aye and aye.
