In Darkest Shades
Words & Music by Cameron Gray (based on a hymn by Isaac Watts, 1748, Gadsby 1011). ©2007 Rough Harbor Music.

My God, my God,
Thou spring of all my joy,
Thou life of my delight,
Thou glory of my brightest day,
Thou comfort of my night—
In darkest shades,
If Thou would but appear,
My dawning is begun;
Thou art my soul’s sweet morning star
And Thou my rising sun.
