1.

When I turn my face away

And set my feet to stray

Thy love then holds to me fast

And keeps me there steadfast.

 

So, I’ll never seek to be

From Thy love’s tethers free.

Like the string that holds the kite

Aloft against wind’s might.

2.

When I turn my heart to stone

And forge out on my own

Then Thy love stays close nearby

I never leave Thy eye.

 

So, I’ll never seek to be

From Thy love’s tethers free.

Like the string that holds the kite

Aloft against wind’s might.

 

3.

When I let my mind forget

The bounds that Thou hast set

Then Thy love gently reminds

My ear to Thee inclines.

 

So, I’ll never seek to be

From Thy love’s tethers free.

Like the string that holds the kite

Aloft against wind’s might.
