Delight in God

913 S. M.
Delight in God.

LORD! I delight in thee,
   And on thy care depend;
   To thee in every trouble flee,
   My best, my only Friend.

2 When nature’s streams are dried,
   Thy fulness is the same;
   With this will I be satisfied,
   And glory in thy Name.

3 Who made my heaven secure,
   Will here all good provide:
   While Christ is rich, can I be poor?
   What can I want beside?

4 I cast my care on thee!
   I triumph and adore:
   Henceforth my great concern shall be
   To love and please thee more.
                         John Ryland
