Approach not the altar with gloom in thy soul

Approach not the altar with gloom in thy soul

Representative Text

Approach not the altar with gloom in thy soul,
Nor let thy feet falter from terror’s control;
God loves not the sadness of fear and mistrust;
O, serve Him with gladness,—the Loving and Just!

His bounty is tender, His being is love;
His smile fills with splendor the blue arch above;
Confiding, believing, O, enter always
His courts with thanksgiving, His portals with praise!

Come not to His temple with pride in thy mien
But lowly and simple, in courage serene;
Bring meekly before Him the faith of a child,
Bow down and adore Him with heart undefiled!
