Thou Art My Portion O My God


You are my portion, O my God!
Soon as I know your way,
my heart makes haste t’obey your word,
and I will not delay.
The testimonies of your grace
I set before my eyes;
I there derive my daily strength,
and there my comfort lies.

If I have wandered from your path,
I’ll think upon my ways;
then turn my feet to your commands,
and trust your pardoning grace.
I choose the path of heavenly truth,
and glory in my choice;
not all the riches of the earth
can make me so rejoice.
