Sung during the Sunday worship at the Metropolitan Tabernacle, London (Spurgeon’s).
Hymn 119 part 7 (based on Psalm 119) from our hymn book, Psalms & Hymns of Reformed Worship.
THOU art my portion, O my God,
I’m pledged to keep Thy way,
To willingly obey Thy Word,
And act without delay.
If I should wander from Thy path,
I’ll think upon my ways,
Then turn my steps to Thy commands
And seek Thy pardoning grace.
At night, when duty’s clamour dies,
I’ll call Thy works to mind;
Bid thoughts in warm devotion rise,
And Thine acceptance find.
All they who own Thy saving ways
Shall my companions be;
With them I’ll join in prayer and praise,
In fear and love of Thee.
Thy mercies fill the earth, O Lord;
How good Thy works appear!
Open my eyes to know Thy Word,
And love Thy wonders there.
