    Verse 1
    O Thou in whose presence my soul takes delight,
    On whom in affliction I call,
    My comfort by day and my song in the night,
    My hope, my salvation, my all!

    Verse 2
    Where dost Thou, dear Shepherd, resort with Thy sheep.
    To feed them in pastures of love;
    Say, why in the valley of death should I weep,
    Or alone in this wilderness rove?

    Verse 3
    He looks! and the thousands of angels rejoice,
    And myriads wait for His word;
    He speaks! and eternity filled with His voice,
    Re-echoes the praise of the Lord.

    Verse 4
    Dear Shepherd! I hear, and will follow Thy call;
    I know the sweet sound of Thy voice;
    Restore and defend me, for Thou art my all,
    And in Thee I will ever rejoice.
