1. O light of my spirit and joy of my heart,
Thou chief among thousands, how lovely Thou art!
I think of Thy goodness where’er I may be,
My rock and salvation, I live but for Thee.

Refrain
I live but in Thee, I live but in Thee,
My rock and salvation, I live but in Thee;
I live but in Thee, I live but in Thee,
My rock and salvation, I live but in Thee.

2. I care not for treasures that rust and decay,
I seek not for pleasures that vanish away,
Enough that my Savior my portion will be,
O loving Redeemer, I live but in Thee. [Refrain]

3. Thus far hast Thou led me, I’ll trust Thee for all,
I know Thou wilt ever respond to my call;
I feel that Thy grace is sufficient for me,
O Savior of sinners, I live but in Thee. [Refrain]
