GOD'S PRESENCE IN THE CHURCH




If God unveils his smiling face,
Heaven it is to me;
His church becomes a seat of bliss,
Where I his glory see.


How vain the charms that creatures boast
If once with this compared;
His service is divinely free,
His work its own reward.


To celebrate his highest praise,
His holy will to do,
Is my delightful sweet employ,
The course I would pursue.


When he is near, my griefs disperse,
Like mists before the sun;
When absent, darkness veils my skies,
And all my joys are gone.
