My goal is God Himself, not joy, nor peace

1
My goal is God Himself, not joy, nor peace,
Nor even blessing, but Himself, my God;
’Tis His to lead me there—not mine, but His—
At any cost, dear Lord, by any road.
2
So faith bounds forward to its goal in God,
And love can trust her Lord to lead her there;
Upheld by Him, my soul is following hard
Till God hath full fulfilled my deepest prayer.
3
No matter if the way be sometimes dark,
No matter though the cost be oft-times great,
He knoweth how I best shall reach the mark,
The way that leads to Him must needs be strait.
4
One thing I know, I cannot say Him nay;
One thing I do, I press towards my Lord;
My God my glory here, from day to day,
And in the glory there my great Reward.

I was led to sing this hymn after a time of prayer because at the conclusion of my prayer I had the most beautiful realization that God had worked in my heart to only want Him. What a blessed freedom to desire only one thing - God Himself!

At any cost, the union of Spirit with my spirit to rule my soul and flesh only serve to have God, Himself that He would then fully have me.

“So faith bounds forward to its goal in God,

And love can trust her Lord to lead her there;

Upheld by Him, my soul is following hard

Till God hath full fulfilled my deepest prayer.”

This is my creed, that mid earth's sin and sorrow

My life may guide men unto Thee.

Lord, I just want You.

I'm low in a valley right now, but I know one thing - no matter what I can never say no to You. All I can do right now is keep pressing on toward my Lord. No matter if the way be sometimes dark... my goal is God Himself.

"... Christians have God living within them; they have God's life in them. Hence, they may be considered the remarkable and exceptional ones among men. With these ones, what is the goal of their human life? They read the Bible and pray daily, and they also meet together and offer petitions regularly. What actually is their inclination? What do they want to obtain in their pursuit...?

... If Christians fail to ascertain this goal, then it is difficult for them to be normal, genuine Christians. This is because if a Christian does not have a proper goal, his direction and his way will be wrong; consequently, he will not conduct himself as a Christian. Therefore, ...Christians should know the proper Christian goal so that they may establish the proper Christian model...."
