Hymn/Song Information

Stay Master stay upon this heavenly hill




Stay, Master, stay,
upon this heavenly hill;
A little longer, let us linger still;
With all the mighty ones
of old beside,
Near to God’s
holy presence still abide;
Before the throne of light
we trembling stand,
And catch a glimpse
into the spirit land.


Stay, Master, stay!
we breathe a purer air;
This life is not the life
that waits us there;
Thoughts, feelings, flashes,
glimpses come and go;
We cannot speak them—
nay, we do not know;
Wrapped in this cloud
of light we seem to be
The thing we fain
would grow—eternally.


“No!” saith the Lord,
“the hour is past,” we go;
Our home, our life,
our duties lie below.
While here we kneel upon
the mount of prayer,
The plough lies waiting
in the furrow there!
Here we sought God
that we might know His will;
There we must do it,
serve Him, seek Him still.


If man aspires to reach
the throne of God,
O’er the dull plains of earth
must lie the road;
He who best does
his lowly duty here,
Shall mount the highest
in a nobler sphere:
At God’s own feet our
spirits seek their rest,
And he is dearest Him
who serves Him best.
