The Lord Is My Portion
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,
