John Newton, 1779, from Olney Hymns, vol. 1, hymn 69
From pole to pole let others roam,|
And search in vain for bliss;
My soul is satisfied at home,
The Lord my portion is.
2. Jesus, who on his glorious throne
3. His person fixes all my love,
4. His word of promise is my food,|
His Spirit is my guide;
Thus daily is my strength renewed
And all my wants supplied.
5. For him I count as gain each loss,
6. Let worldlings then indulge their boast,
