IMMORTAL honours rest on Jesusí head;
   My God, my portion, and my living bread;
In Him I live, upon Him cast my care;
He saves from death, destruction and despair.
 
2  He is my refuge in each deep distress;
The Lord my strength and glorious righteousness;
Through floods and flames He leads me safely on,
And daily makes His sovereign goodness known.
 
3  My every need He richly will supply,
Nor will His mercy ever let me die;
In Him there dwells a treasure all divine,
And matchless grace has made that treasure mine.
 
4  O, that my soul could love and praise Him more,
His beauties trace, His majesty adore;
Live near His heart, upon His bosom lean;
Obey His voice, and all His will esteem.
 
William Gadsby, 1773-1844
