O Lord, I will delight in Thee

Oh Lord I will delight in the
And on thy care depend,
To thee in every trouble flee,
My best, my only friend.

When all created streams have dried,
Thy fullness is the same;
May I with this be satisfied
And glory in thy name.

No good in creatures can be found
But may be found in thee;
I must have all things and abound
While God is God to me.

O lord, I cast my care on thee,
I triumph and adore;
Henceforth my great concern shall be
To Love and please thee more.

John Ryland (1753 -1825)
SASB 14
