GIFT OF GOD




Jesus, my Lord, my soul's delight,
For thee I long, for thee I pray;
Amid the shadows of the night.
Amid the business of the day.


When shall I see thy smiling faceó
That face which I have often seen?
Arise thou son of righteousness,
And burst the clouds that intervene.


Thou art the glorious gift of God,
To sinners weary and distrest;
The first of all his gifts bestowed,
And certain pledge of all the rest.


Could I but say, this gift is mine,
I'd tread the world beneath my feet;
No more at poverty repine,
Nor envy sinners rich and great.


The precious jewel I would keep,
And lodge it deep within my heart;
At home, abroad, awake, asleep,
It never should from thence depart!
