Hymn 103Play music
1. My God, I thank Thee,who hast made the earth so bright,
So full of purity and joy, and wondrous light;
So many glorious things are here, divinely right.
2 I thank Thee,too, that Thou hast made our joys abound;
So many gentle thoughts and deeds engird us round;
That in the darkest spot on earth some love is found.
3 I thank Thee, Lord, that Thou hast kept the best in store;
I have enough, yet not too much, to long for more;
A yearning for a deeper peace not known before.
4 I thank Thee,Lord, that here our souls, though amply blest,
Can never find, although they seek a perfect rest-
Nor ever shall until they are by Christ confessed.
