Here you will find the Poem Go Not Far From Me, O My God of poet Anna Laetitia Waring
Go not far from me, O my God, Whom all my times obey; Take from me anything Thou wilt, But go not Thou away, And let the storm that does thy work Deal with me as it may. On thy compassion I repose In weakness and distress: I will not ask for greater ease, Lest I should love Thee less. Oh, 'tis a blessed thing for me To need thy tenderness. When I am feeble as a child, And flesh and heart give way, Then on thy everlasting strength With passive trust I stay, And the rough wind becomes a song; The darkness shines like day. Deep unto deep may call, but I With peaceful heart can say, Thy loving-kindness hath a charge No waves can take away: Then let the storm that speeds me home Deal with me as it may.
