Author: Oliver W. Holmes Appears in 271 hymnals Lyrics: 1 O love divine, that stooped to share
Our sharpest pang, our bitterest tear!
On thee we cast each earth-born care;
We smile at pain while thou art near.
2 Though long the weary way we tread,
And sorrow crown each lingering year,
No path we shun, no darkness dread;
Our hearts still whispering, "Thou art near!"
3 When drooping pleasure turns to grief,
And trembling faith is changed to fear,
The murmuring wind, the quivering leaf,
Shall softly tell us, "Thou art near!"
4 On thee we fling our burdening woe,
O love divine, forever dear;
Content to suffer while we know,
Living and dying, thou art near! Topics: The Christian Trust and Resignation Used With Tune: YORK
