Psalter 203

Verse 1
In sweet communion, Lord, with Thee
I constantly abide;
My hand Thou holdest in Thy own
To keep me near Thy side.

Verse 2
Thy counsel through my earthly way
Shall guide me and control,
And then to glory afterward
Thou wilt receive my soul.

Verse 3
Whom have I, Lord, in heav'n but Thee,
To whom my tho'ts aspire?
And, having Thee, on earth is nought
That I can yet desire.

Verse 4
Tho' flesh and heart should faint and fail,
The Lord will ever be
The strength and portion of my heart,
My God eternally.

Verse 5
To live apart from God is death,
'Tis good His face to seek;
My refuge is the living God,
His praise I long to speak.
