Dear Lord, Thou art my everything.

That's enough for me,

Nothing else but Thee, not anything,

Answers my heart's plea.

There is nothing that can satisfy,

Love and Life and Light,

Thee my soul will ever magnify

To a greater height!

One thing I beseech from Thee, o Lord!

Let me dwell by Thee.

For when part of Thy celestial court,

Thou instructest me.

Satan tests and tempts with sorrow 'n pain.

Thou canst pull me through.

Hellish trouble overwhelms in vain.

Thy work they but do.

Glory, praise and magnitude are Thine.

There I lose myself.

Blessed Person, great, divine, Thou'rt mine.

There I find myself!

F.C. Bouter.
