Text

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;

Where dost thou, dear Shepherd,
resort with thy sheep?
to feed in the pastures of love?
Say, why in the valley
of death should I weep,
or lone in the wilderness rove?

Oh, why should I wander
an alien from thee,
or cry in the desert for bread?
Thy foes will rejoice when my
sorrows they see,
and smile at the tears I have shed.

He looks, and ten thousands
of angels rejoice,
and myriads wait for his word.
He speaks, and eternity
filled with his voice,
reechoes the praise of the Lord.

(from O Thou in Whose Presence by Joseph Swain, 1791
