Come Lead Me To Some Lofty Shade

Author: Isaac Watts, 1674-1748 Hymnal: The Cyber Hymnal #10207 Hymnal Title: The Cyber Hymnal Lyrics: 1 Come lead me to some lofty shade Where turtles moan their loves; Tall shadows were for lovers made; And grief becomes the groves. 2 ’Tis no mean beauty of the ground That has enslaved mine eyes; I faint beneath a nobler wound, Nor love below the skies. 3 Jesus, the spring of all that’s bright, The everlasting fair, Heav’n’s ornament, and Heav’n’s delight, Is my eternal care. 4 But ah! how far above this grove Does the bright charmer dwell! Absence, thou keenest wound to love, That sharpest pain, I feel. 5 Pensive I climb the sacred hills, And near Him vent my woes; Yet His sweet face He still conceals, Yet still my passion grows. 6 I murmur to the hollow vale, I tell the rocks my flame, And bless the echo in her cell That best repeats His name. 7 My passion breathes perpetual sighs, Till pitying winds shall hear, And gently bear them up the skies, And gently wound His ear.
