Lord, to whom shall we go?
John 6:68.

139

Mrs. Steele.

Thou only Sovereign of my heart,

My Refuge, my almighty Friend—

And can my soul from thee depart,

On whom alone my hopes depend?

2 Whither, ah! whither shall I go,

A wretched wanderer from my Lord?

Can this dark world of sin and woe

One glimpse of happiness afford?

3 Eternal life thy words impart;

On these my fainting spirit lives;

Here sweeter comforts cheer my heart,

Than all the round of nature gives.

4 Let earth’s alluring joys combine;

While thou art near, in vain they call!

One smile, one blissful smile of thine,

My dearest Lord, outweighs them all.

5 Thy name my inmost powers adore;

Thou art my life, my joy, my care;

Depart from thee—’tis death—’tis more—

’Tis endless ruin, deep despair!

6 Low at thy feet my soul would lie;

Here safety dwells, and peace divine;

Still let me live beneath thine eye,

For life, eternal life, is thine.
