Lord in this blest and hallowed hour




Lord, in this blest
and hallowed hour
Reveal Thy presence
and Thy power;
Show to my faith
Thy hands and side,
My Lord and God, the crucified.


Fain would I find a calm retreat
From vain distractions
near Thy feet;
And, born above all earthly care,
Be joyful in Thy house of prayer.


Or let me through
the opening skies
Catch one bright
glimpse of paradise;
And realize, with raptured awe,
The vision dying Stephen saw.


But if unworthy of such joy.
Still shall Thy love
my heart employ;
For of Thy favoured children’s fare
‘Twere bliss the
very crumbs to share.


Yet never can my soul be fed
With less than Thee,
the living bread;
Thyself unto my soul impart,
And with Thy presence fill my heart.
