Psalm 63: "O God, my Strength, the early hour"

L.M. (Wilton)
Psalm 63
O God, my Strength, the early hour
Of every day your praise shall claim.
My soul desires to taste your power,
And see the glory of your name.

Life's glories fade beside your love,
My lips and hands shall give you praise;
Blessings poured out from stores above
Bring sweet abundance all my days.

I think upon you in the night,
Rest in the shadow of your wing:
You are my help, my soul's delight,
And of your grace I gladly sing.

My soul will closely follow you;
Your hand upholds and comforts me.
My God shall bear me safely through,
I need not fear my enemy.

Soon shall be stopped the lying voice,
But I shall glory in your grace.
In God, my Strength, I shall rejoice,
All my delight to seek your face.
Jeremy Walker
