NEARNESS DESIRED




Oh thou who dwell’st above,
My Saviour and my God;
Laden with guilt, behold I wait,
For thine atoning blood.


For shelter and for ease,
I to thy bosom come;
And there within thy circling arms,
Would make my lasting home.


Prostrate before thy feet,
I every fault confess;
And look for all I want or wish,
From thy distinguished grace,


With pitying eye regard,
The sorrows I endure;
And let thy Spirit and thy word,
Create my nature pure.


Oh turn me not away,
But grant me this request;
Let me be ever near to thee,
And with thy favour blessed.
