M. E. Barber

DEEP down into the depths of this Thy name,

My God, I sink and dwell in calm delight;

Thou art enough however long the day,

Thou art enough however dark the night.


Thou art enough, however great the trial,

Thou art enough, however lone the scene;

With Thee alone, there’s fulness of Thy joy,

With Thee alone, there’s singing of Thy song.


Thou art my God-the All-Sufficient One,

Thou canst create for me whate’er I lack;

Thy mighty Hand has strewn the homeward track

With miracles of love and tender care.


For me Thy trusting one, my God I dare

Once more to fly myself upon Thy breast,

And there adore Thy ways in faith’s deep rest,

And there adore Thy ways in faith’s quiet rest.
