Hymn/Song Information

MOURNING AN ABSENT SAVIOUR




Lord, when thy presence I enjoy,
What sacred peace it gives;
My heart and hands find sweet employ,
My fainting spirit lives.


But when thine absence I bewail,
How many fears arise;
My strength is gone, my spirits fail,
And every comfort dies.


When with affliction Iím oppressed,
Death fills with dire alarms;
My place of safety and of rest,
I find within thine arms.


Jesus, I long to see thy face,
And feast upon thy love;
Oh visit me in my distress,
And never hence remove.
