LONGING FOR CHRIST'S PRESENCE




Let Jesus all my thoughts employ,
His presence turns my grief to joy;
When he is with me, I can call
My mercies great, my trials small.


The arms of faith around him twined,
Shall still support my sinking mind;
These eyes shall on his beauties gaze,
These lips resound his highest praise.


Oppressed with guilt, to him I come,
His smiles dispel the deepest gloom,
Tired of the world, to him I flee,
He’s more than all the world to me.


Through death’s dark valley, if he lead,
My soul would venture, fearless tread;
And on him lean till I possess,
Life, peace, and endless happiness.
