1 Thou only Sov'reign of my heart,
My refuge, my almighty Friend!
And can my soul from Thee depart,
On whom alone my hopes depend?
2 Whither, ah, whither shall I go,
A wretched wand'rer from my Lord?
Can this dark world of sin and woe
One glimpse of happiness afford?
3 Eternal life Thy words impart;
On these my fainting spirit lives;
Here sweeter comforts cheer my heart
Than all the round of nature gives.
4 Low at Thy feet my soul would lie;
Here safety dwells, and peace divine;
Still let me live beneath Thine eye,
for life, eternal life, is Thine.
