Treasure Island

Who But Thee


Who have I in heaven but Thee
There are none upon the Earth I haileth;
But Thee whom I desire
Though my strength and my heart faileth.

God is the strength of my heart
My portion forevermore;
Lo, they far from Thee shall perish
You destroy them from shore to shore.

But for me, to draw nigh to God is good
In the Lord God I put my trust,
That I might declare all Thy works
I love Thee, for Thou art just!

Psalm 73: 25-28

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
