LONGING FOR CHRIST'S PRESENCE




Jesus, while Ive life and motion,
I would serve and honour thee,
Grateful own with deep devotion.
All thy kindness done to me;
Thou shalt have my best affections,
Who art loved by all the saints,
Under pressures and dejections,
Thou canst ease my sad complaints.


Thou art my securest dwelling,
From the storm a hiding place,
Then thy love is all-excelling,
Bringing with it life and peace;
One kind beam of thine can bless me,
Dissipate my doubts and fears,
Earthly woes can neer distress me,
While the mid-day sun appears.
