O Thou My Light My Life My Joy


O THOU, my light, my life, my joy,
My glory, and my all!
Unsent by thee no good can come,
No evil can befall.

Such are thy schemes of providence,
And methods of thy grace,
That I may safely trust in thee
Through all this wilderness.

‘Tis thine outstretched and powerful arm
Upholds me in the way;
And thy rich bounty well supplies
The wants of every day.

For such compassions, O my God,
Ten thousand thanks are due;
For such compassions, I esteem
Ten thousand thanks too few.
