1 To Thee, my God, whose presence fills
The earth, and seas, and skies,
To Thee, whose name, whose heart is Love,
With all my powers I rise.
2 Troubles in long succession roll;
Wave rushes upon wave;
Pity, O pity my distress;
Thy child, Thy suppliant save.
3 O bid the roaring tempest cease;
Or give me strength to bear
Whate'er Thy holy will appoints,
And save me from despair.
4 To Thee, my God, alone I look,
On Thee alone confide;
Thou never hast deceived the soul
That on thy grace relied.
5 Though oft Thy ways are rapt in clouds
Mysterious and unknown,
Truth, Righteousness and Mercy stand
The pillars of Thy throne.
