My Help and My Hope

V1
My Help and my Hope: high above, ever near 
Unto Your servant incline now Your ear 
Though fleeting this breath You have given to me 
Poured out like water, a drop in the sea 

Yes brief are my days, but Yours without end 
Still my voice You hear; to my cry You attend 
What wonderful joy! What marvelous peace! 
Your aid shall not fail me, Your grace never cease
V2
O, be my salvation, my ark on the wave 
When storms of sin would sink me to the grave 
For darkness appears and the clouds hasten night 
Fix my eyes firmly on Your dawning light 

If not for the Lamb, torn that I be whole 
The thorn of the curse would lie cut through my soul 
What favor abounds! What riches untold! 
Yourself, my possession; Your Word mine to hold
V3
What debt must be settled? What more could You give? 
Love’s work is finished; by death now I live 
So plant me to grow and then prune me to bear 
In Christ abiding, upheld by Your care 

To stranger and kin will I testify– 
Till all breath is spent and to my gain I die– 
That You hear and have regarded my plea 
My Help and my Hope You forever shall be
