Alternate Tune:

If you know when this hymn was writ­ten,


Immortal hon­ors rest on Je­sus’ head;
My God, my por­tion, and my liv­ing bread;
In Him I live, upon Him cast my care;
He saves from death, de­struct­ion, and des­pair.

He is my re­fuge in each deep dis­tress;
The Lord my strength and glo­ri­ous right­eous­ness;
Through floods and flames He leads me safe­ly on,
And dai­ly makes His so­ver­eign good­ness known.

My ev­ery need He rich­ly will sup­ply;
Nor will His mer­cy ev­er let me die;
In Him there dwells a trea­sure all di­vine,
And match­less grace has made that trea­sure mine.

O that my soul could love and praise Him more,
His beau­ties trace, His ma­jes­ty ad­ore;
Live near His heart, upon His bo­som lean;
Obey His voice, and all His will es­teem.
