740. Lord a Little Band and Lowly

1 Lord, a little band, and lowly,
We are come to sing to Thee;
Thou art great, and high, and holy—
Oh, how solemn we should be!

Refrain:
Far away, in the realms of beauty,
Farther on, to the golden shore,
Pressing on, in the line of duty,
We shall meet to part no more.

2 Fill our hearts with tho'ts of Jesus,
And of heav'n where He has gone;
And let nothing ever please us
He would grieve to look upon. [Refrain]

3 For we know the Lord of glory
Always sees what children do,
And is writing now the story
Of our thoughts and actions, too. [Refrain]

4 Let our sins be all forgiven;
Make us fear whate'er is wrong;
Let us on our way to heaven,
There to sing a nobler song. [Refrain]
