O God, my God, just as I thee - My God
(Carl Johann Philipp Spitta/Richard Massie/
Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

My God.

1. O God, my God, just as I thee
  discover in thy word,
e'en such a God thou art to me,
  thy poor weak child, O Lord.

2. O what a joy it is to me,
  that thou no other art,
and that I daily taste and see
  thy goodness in my heart!

3. I, full of sin, thou, full of grace,
  and suited to my need;
I, blind and ignorant, alas!
  thou, wise in word and deed.

4. I look around, above, thou art
  alike both far and near;
I lay my hand upon my heart,
  and feel that thou art there.

5. Therefore it is a joy to me,
  that thou art what thou art –
that everything I find in thee
  to satisfy my heart.

Richard Massie, Lyra Domestica II, 1864, 30.
Translated from the German O Gott, mein Gott, so wie ich dich - Mein Gott!
of Carl Johann Philipp Spitta.
