God is in this and every place;
But O how dark and void

God is in this and every place;
But O how dark and void
To me! ’tis one great wilderness,
This earth without my God.

Empty of him who all things fills,
Till he his light impart,
Till he his glorious self reveals,
The veil is on my heart.

O thou who seest and know’st my grief,
Thyself unseen, unknown!
Pity my helpless unbelief,
And take away the stone.

Regard me with a gracious eye,
The long-sought blessing give;
And bid me, at the point to die,
Behold thy face and live.

Now, Jesus, now, the Father’s love
Shed in my heart abroad;
The middle wall of sin remove,
And let me into God.
