Hymn/Song Information

MOURNING AN ABSENT SAVIOUR




If Jesus hide his lovely face,
What griefs o’erwhelm my mind!
I search the whole creation round,
But no relief can find.


All earthly beauties fade away,
If he withhold his light;
He presence makes it shining day,
His absence gloomy night.


For thee I sigh, for thee I mourn,
To feel and taste the love;
Return, dear Saviour, oh return,
And never more remove.
