CAC GHB 496: LORD TO WHOM EXCEPT TO THEE
MAKE MELODY IN YOUR HEART TO THE LORD
496 Lord to whom except to Thee
Lord, to whom shall we go.
Lord, to whom except to Thee
Shall our wand’ring spirits go;
There Whom it is light to see,
And Eternal Life to know?
Awful is that Life of Thine
Which the Spirit’s Breath inspires;
And the food must be Divine
Which each new-born soul desires.
Israel on Heavenly seed
Fed and died in days of yore:
But the souls that on Thee feed,
Never thirst or hunger more.
Lord to whom except to Thee
Shall we go when ills betide?
Who except Thyself can be
Hope and help and strength and guide?
Who can cleanse the soul from sin,
Hear the pray’r and seal the vow?
Who can fill the void within,
Blessed Saviour who but Thou?
Therefore evermore I’ll give
Laud and praise my Lord to Thee:
Evermore in Thee I live,
Evermore live Thou in me.
