MOURNING AN ABSENT GOD




To thee, oh, God of grace,
In my distress I cry;
How long wilt thou conceal thy face,
And pass my sorrow by?


I, like a lonely dove,
My state am left to mourn;
I feel the absence of my Love,
And wait his kind return.


And shall I wait in vain,
Devote my days to grief;
Oh hear me, Lord, while I complain,
And haste to my relief.


Come leaping oer the hills,
Which separate from thee;
Scatter each cloud which now conceals
Thy presence, lord, from me.
