224 (C.M.) Isaac Watts

My God, the spring of all my joys,

The life of my delights,

The glory of my brightest days,

And comfort of my nights.

In darkest shades if He appear

My dawning is begun;

He is my soul's sweet morning star,

And He my rising sun.

The op'ning heav'ns around me shine

With beams of sacred bliss,

While Jesus shows His heart is mine,

And whispers I am His.

My soul would leave this heavy clay

At that transporting word,

Run up with joy the shining way,

T' embrace my dearest Lord.

Fearless of hell and ghastly death,

I'd break through ev'ry foe;

The wings of love, and arms of faith

Should bear me conq'ror through.
