[choir] As the bridegroom to his chosen, as the king unto his realm, As the keeper to the castle, as the pilot to the helm, As the captain to his solders, as the shepherd to his lambs, So, Lord, art thou to me. As the fountain in the garden, as the candle in the dark, As the treasure in the coffer, as the manna in the ark, As the firelight in the winter, as the sunlight in the spring, So, Lord, are thou to me.
[Solo] As the music at the banquet, as the stamp unto the seal, As refreshment to the fainting, as the wine cup at the meal, As the singing on the feast day, as the amen to the prayer, So, Lord, art thou to me.
[choir] As the ruby in the setting, as the honey in the comb, As the light within the lantern, as the father in the home, As the eagle in the mountains, as the sparrow in the nest, So are thou, Lord, to me. As the sunshine in the heavens, as the image in the glass, As the fruit unto the fig tree, as the dew unto the grass, As the rainbow on the hilltop, as the river in the plain, So art thou, Lord, So art thou, Lord, to me.
