Lyrics

O Thou in whose presence delighteth my soul
And whom in my distress I call
My comfort by day and my refuge by night
My stronghold whenever I fall.

Shepherd of my soul I beg Thee to tell
Where thou keepest thy sheep to rest
For why should I roam in the valley of tears
And wander as one who is lost.

I ask thee to tell me daughters of Zion
Have ye seen the One I adore
I seek him in vain in the night of my soul
But lo! I can find Him no more.

Shepherd of my soul I shall follow Thee
O how sweet Thy voice is to me
So guide me and lead me and show me the way
My only desire is Thee.

I am my beloved’s and He is mine too
He calleth me sister and spouse
O how do I long for the day we shall wed
In heaven in His Father’s house.
