Our First Sacred Harp Song

Worship is not a spectator sport! This wonderful song is from the Sacred Harp "shaped note" hymnbook.

Tune: Raymond C. Hamrick, 1980
Words: Isaac Watts, 1719
Meter: Short Meter (6,6,8,6)

My Savior and my King,
Thy beauties are divine;
Thy lips with blessing overflow,
And ev’ry grace is Thine.

The smilings of Thy face,
How amiable they are;
’Tis heav’n to rest in Thine embrace,
And nowhere else but there.

Nor earth, nor all the sky,
Can one delight afford;
No, not a drop of Thy real joy,
Without Thy presence, Lord.
