Christ My Song - 1051
Thou art my Joy, Lord Jesus! - The God of my Salvation
(Hannah K. Burlingham/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
The God of my Salvation.
1. Thou art my Joy, Lord Jesus!
for the Father joys in thee.
Thou art my Peace, Lord Jesus;
thou didst give thyself for me.
Ere the closing race be run,
ere the crown of life be won,
thou art my Joy.
Thou art my Shield from condemnation,
thou art the Rock of my Salvation. PDF - Midi
2. Thou art my Bread, Lord Jesus;
evermore I live by thee:
thou art my Wine, Lord Jesus,
for thy blood was shed for me.
In the battle’s deadly fray,
in the coming glory day,
thou art my Bread.
Thou art my Wine of consolation,
thou art the Strength of my Salvation.
3. Thou art my Strength, Lord Jesus;
for all power belongs to thee:
thou art my Song, Lord Jesus,
and thy grace sufficeth me.
Till the tears of time be o’er,
till the Tempter tempt no more,
thou art my Strength.
Thou art my Song in tribulation,
thou art the Home of my Salvation.
4. Thou art my Light, Lord Jesus,
and I love to gaze on thee;
thou art my Life, Lord Jesus,
thou art throned on high for me.
Though the lesser lights may pale,
though my flesh and heart may fail,
thou art my Life.
Thou art the Sun of God’s creation,
thou art my Light and my Salvation.
5. Thou art my Hope, Lord Jesus:
I am waiting here for thee.
Thou art my gain, Lord Jesus.
thou art all in all to me.
Thou art Joy and Food and Might;
thou art Peace and Life and Light;
thou art my Hope.
Thou art my Lord, mine adoration;
thou art the God of my Salvation.
