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.
They look, and ten thousands of angels rejoice, and myriads wait for their word.
They speak, and eternity, filled with their voice, reechoes the praise of the Lord.
