And I am left alone with Thee,
With Thee all Night I mean to stay,
And wrestle till the Break of Day.

Tell me Thy Name, and tell me now?

I halt, till Life's short Journey end ;
All Helplesness, all Weakness I,

On Thee alone for Strength depend,
Nor have I Power, from Thee, to move ;
Thy Nature, and Thy Name is LOVE.
