Full Text

1 On Thee, my Lord, my soul is stayed
With Thee my heart is undismayed;
Thy presence makes my pathway bright,
Thy smile illumes the darkest night.

Let tempests rage,
Let ills befall,
Let hell engage,
Let death appall,
On Thee my Lord,
My soul is stayed,
On Thee my soul is stayed.

2 His gracious hand my need supplies,
His cheering voice makes joys to rise,
And all the way I’ll trust in Him,
Though strength should fail and sight grow dim. [Refrain]
