Where is the Friend?

Author: Johan Olof Wallin, 1779-1839 Hymnal: Hymnal and Order of Service #325b (1901) Meter: 11.11.11.5 Hymnal Title: Hymnal and Order of Service First Line: Where is the Friend for whom I'm ever yearning? Lyrics: 1 Where is the Friend for whom I'm ever yearning? My longing grows when day to night is turning; And though I find Him not as day recedeth, My heart still pleadeth. 2 I know He's there in every force and power, Where waves the harvest and where blooms the flower; I'm ever in my breath and sighs so burning, His love discerning. 3 When summer winds blow gently, then I hear Him; Where sing the birds, where rush the streams I'm near Him; But better far when in my heart He blesses Me with caresses. 4 And yet to hide Him oft a cloud prevaileth; My prayer can reach Him, but my vision faileth. Would I could see His face and heart so loving, And cease my roving. 5 Oh, where such beauty is itself revealing In all that lives, through all creation stealing, What must the source be whence it comes, the Giver! Beauty forever. Topics: Death and Resurrection Languages: English Tune Title: O DU GUDS LAM

Where Is the Friend for Whom I'm Ever Yearning?

Author: Johan Olof Wallin; Charles William Schæffer Hymnal: The Hymnal and Order of Service #517 (1926) Meter: 11.11.11.5 Hymnal Title: The Hymnal and Order of Service Lyrics: 1 Where is the Friend for whom I'm ever yearning? My longing grows when day to night is turning; And though I find Him not as day recedeth, My heart still pleadeth. 2 His hand I see in every force and power, Where waves the harvest and where blooms the flower; In every breath I draw, my spirit burneth: His love discerneth. 3 When summer winds blow gently, then I hear Him; Where sing the birds, where rush the streams, I'm near Him; But nearer still when in my heart He blesses Me with caresses. 4 And yet, to hide Him, oft a cloud prevaileth; My prayer can reach Him, but my vision faileth. Would I could see His face and heart so loving, And cease my roving. 5 O where such beauty is itself revealing In all that lives, through all creation stealing, What must the Source be whence it comes, the Giver? Beauty forever. 6 Be strong, my soul; hope, pray, await His favor, And thou shalt know the sweetness of thy Saviour; When in His gentle arms secure He holds thee, His love enfolds thee. 7 Soon on that shore where stormy wave ne'er breaketh The weary dove its final refuge taketh; The timorous lamb shall by thy Shepherd's favor Find rest forever. Amen. Topics: Hope and Aspiration Languages: English Tune Title: O DU GUDS LAM
