Your grace and goodness knows no end
You desire to be my eternal friend,
Towards this goal you always act
For in you there is no turning back.
You have tried to reach me so very much,
Your extended arm holds your salving touch.
Tenaciously you refuse to leave me alone -
Until I’m found with you at Home.
Your gentleness invites my soul to light,
Your words destroy the distress of night.
Alone in your presence I can find rest,
In your eternal boughs we build my nest.
There is no way of goodness without you my Lord,
There is no way of understanding, without your
precious guiding Word.
