Hymn/Song Information

O how the love of God attracts And draws the heart




O how the love of God attracts
And draws the heart from earth,
And sickness it of passing shows,
And dissipating mirth!


'Tis not enough to save our souls,
To shun the eternal fires;
The love of God will rouse the heart
To more sublime desires.


O cherish but the love of God
Down in your heart of hearts,
And see how from the world at once
All tempting light departs.


The perfect way is hard to flesh
It is not hard to love:
O if thy heart with love were filled,
How swiftly wouldst thou move!


A trusting heart, a yearning eye,
Can win their way above;
If mountains can be moved by faith,
Is there less power in love ?


God only is the creature's home,
Though long and rough the road.
And nothing less can satisfy
The love that longs for God.
