Hymn Selection



O LORD, we would delight in Thee,
And on Thy care depend;
To Thee in every trouble flee,
Our safe unfailing Friend.
When human cisterns all are dried,
Thy fulness is the same;
May we with this be satisfied,
And glory in Thy Name.
What good in creatures may be found
Is all derived from Thee;
We must have all things and abound
Through Thy sufficiency.
Thou who hast made our hope secure
Wilt here all good provide;
While Thou art rich, can we be poor?
Thou who for us hast died!
O Lord, we cast each care on Thee,
And triumph and adore;
O that our great concern may be
To love and praise Thee more!

J. Ryland* (1753-1825)
