Early will I seek Thee: my soul thirsteth for Thee, my flesh longeth for Thee in a dry and thirsty land. Psalm 63:1
Words: From The Psalter (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania: United Presbyterian Board of Publication, 1912), number 163.
If you know where to get a good picture of Hutcheson (head-and-shoulders, at least 200×300 pixels), would you ?
O Lord, my God, most earnestly
My heart would seek Thy face,
Within Thy holy house once more
To see Thy glorious grace.
Apart from Thee I long and thirst,
And naught can satisfy;
I wander in a desert land
Where all the streams are dry.
The loving-kindness of my God
Is more than life to me;
So I will bless Thee while I live
And lift my prayer to Thee.
In Thee my soul is satisfied,
My darkness turns to light;
And joyful meditations fill
The watches of the night.
My Savior, ’neath Thy sheltering wings
My soul delights to dwell;
Still closer to Thy side I press,
For near Thee all is well.
My soul shall conquer every foe,
Upholden by Thy hand;
Thy people shall rejoice in God,
Thy saints in glory stand.
