Thou art my portion, O my God;
Soon as I know Thy way,
My heart makes haste t'obey Thy word,
And suffers no delay.
I choose the path of heav'nly truth,
And glory in my choice;
Not all the riches or the earth
Could make me so rejoice.
Thy precepts and Thy heav'nly grace
I set before my eyes;
Thence I derive my daily strength,
And there my comfort lies.
