1 Thou life within my life, than self more near,
Thou veiled Presence infinitely clear,
From all illusive shows of sense I flee,
To find my center and my rest in Thee.
2 Below all depths Thy saving mercy lies,
Through thickest gloom I see Thy light arise,
Above the highest heaven Thou art not found
More surely than within this earthly round.
3 Take part with me against those doubts that rise
And seek to throne Thee far in distant skies;
Take part with me against this self that dares
Assume the burden of these sins and cares.
4 How shall I call Thee who art always here?
How shall I praise Thee who art still most dear?
What may I give Thee save what Thou hast given,
And whom but Thee have I in earth or heaven?
