My Goal is God Himself

My Goal is God himself, not joy nor peace,
Nor even blessing, but Himself, my God;
'Tis His to lead me there, not mine but His –
At any cost, dear Lord, by any road.
So faith bounds forward to its goal in God
And love can trust her Lord to lead her there;
Upheld by Him, my soul is following hard
Till God hath full fulfilled my deepest prayer.
No matter if the way be sometimes dark;
No matter though cost to be often times great,
He knoweth how I best shall reach the Mark,
The way that leads to Him must needs be straight.
One thing I know I cannot say Him nay;
One thing I do, I press towards my Lord;
My God, my glory here from day to day,
And in the glory there my Great Reward.
