’Tis because Thou drawest me

  ’Tis because Thou drawest me
I can closely follow Thee;
Thy forbearance can appraise,
Thee experience all my days.
Henna flow’r, Thy loveliness
Beautifies earth’s wilderness;
Like the fragrant myrrh to me,
In my heart I’ve hidden Thee.
Hear, O Lord, my whispered plea:
Henceforth I’ve no Lord but Thee;
All Thy wealth is joy to me,
By Thy life matured I’d be.
