63 (2)Psalm 63 Version 2LM
O GOD, Thou art my God alone,
   Early to Thee my soul shall cry;
A pilgrim in a land unknown,
    A thirsty land, where springs are dry.
2  Oft, in the past, I blessed have been
    When praying in the holy place;
Thy power and glory I have seen,
    And marked the footsteps of Thy grace.
3  When in the watches of the night
    I Thee remember on my bed,
Thy presence makes the darkness light,
    Thy guardian wings surround my head.
4  Better than life itself Thy love,
    Dearer than all beside to me;
For whom have I in Heaven above,
    Or what on earth compared with Thee?
5  Praise with my heart, my mind, my voice,
    For all Thy mercy I will give;
My soul shall still in God rejoice;
    My tongue shall bless Thee while I live.
James Montgomery, 1771-1854
