657. In Sweet Communion, Lord, with Thee

1 In sweet communion, Lord, with thee
I constantly abide;
my hand thou holdest in thine own
to keep me near thy side.

2 Thy counsel through my earthly way
shall guide me and control,
and then to glory afterward
thou wilt receive my soul.

3 Whom have I, Lord, in heav'n but thee,
to whom my thoughts aspire?
And, having thee, on earth is naught
that I can yet desire.

4 Though flesh and heart should faint and fail,
the Lord will ever be
the strength and portion of my heart,
my God eternally.

5 To live apart from God is death,
'tis good his face to seek;
my refuge is the living God,
his praise I long to speak.
