THE PRESENCE OF CHRIST




How sweet to leave the world awhile,
And seek the presence of our Lord!
Dear Savior! on thy people smile,
And come, according to thy word.


From busy scenes we now retreat,
That we may here converse with thee:
Ah! Lord! behold us at thy feet;--
Let this the gate of heaven be.


Chief of ten thousand! now appear,
That we by faith may see thy face;
Oh! speak, that we thy voice may hear
And let thy presence fill this place.


---Alternative verses---


How sweet to leave the world awhile,
And seek the presence of our Lord!
O Jesus, on thy people smile,
And come, according to thy word.


From busy scenes we now retreat,
That we may meditate and pray;
Saviour, behold us at thy feet,
And send us not unblest away.
