1. Thou art my life; if Thou but turn away,
My life’s a thousand deaths: Thou art my way;
Without Thee, Lord, I travel not, but stray.

2. My light Thou art; without Thy glorious sight
My eyes are darkened with perpetual night:
My God, Thou art my way, my life, my light.

3. Thou art my way; I wander, if Thou fly:
Thou art my light: if hid how blind am I!
Thou art my life: if Thou withdraw, I die.

4. Disclose Thy sunbeams; close Thy wings and stay;
See, see how I am blind, and dead, and stray,
O Thou that art my light, my life, my way!
