My God, the Spring of All My Joys

Melody - "Richmond", also known as "Haweis," Thomas Haweis, 1792

Isaac Watts, 1707

My God, the Spring of all my joys,
The Life of my delights,
The Glory of my brightest days,
And Comfort of my nights.

2. In darkest shades if He appear,
My dawning is begun;
He is my soulís sweet morning star,
And He my rising sun.

3. The opening heavíns around me shine,
With beams of sacred bliss,
While Jesus shows His heart is mine,
And whispers, I am His.

4. My soul would leave this heavy clay,
At that transporting word,
Run up with joy the shining way
Tíembrace my dearest Lord.

5. Fearless of hell and ghastly death,
Iíd break through every foe;
The wings of love and arms of faith
Would bear me conqueror through.
