Words: Charles Wesley
Music: "Naomi" by Hans G. Nageli, arr. Lowell Mason

Alternate tune: "Morning Song" by Ananias Davisson
                (sometimes attrib. Elkanah K. Dare),
                harmonised by Charles W. Douglas


Father, I stretch my hands to Thee,
No other help I know;
If Thou withdraw Thyself from me,
Ah! whither shall I go?

What did Thine only Son endure,
Before I drew my breath!
What pain, what labor, to secure
My soul from endless death!

Surely Thou canst not let me die;
O speak, and I shall live;
And here I will unwearied lie,
Till Thou Thy Spirit give.

Author of faith! to Thee I lift
My weary, longing eyes:
O let me now receive that gift!
My soul without it dies.
