My Portion

Whom have I in Heaven but Thee

And besides thee I desire nothing on earth

My heart and my flesh they may fail

But you are the strength of my heart

And my portion

Forever and ever


Inspired by Psalm 73 v 25-27

Chorus circa 1970 – author unknown

I need no one Lord but You

Nor in Heaven

Only You

In the Ultimate

Highest Place

For Eternity Lord

I have You



Compares to You…

I want many things


So many things

I even want to control outcomes

I love much

But for you Lord

I yearn more

I ache more

I am compelled

I am drawn near

To You

Things of Earth





My flesh

My courage

My determination

My knowledge

My vision

My faith

All fail

But You Lord

You are

My Strength

My Courage

My Passion

My 3 strand cord

You are my Soul’s Fire

My very Centre

My Portion

My Piece of Heaven everyday

My Peace

My Entirety

My Untouched Whole


and ever

and ever

and ever

Lord please

Let it be so
