1 Joy divine I now am finding,
As I kneel before the throne,
In the hour of sweet communion
When shut in with God alone.
Oh! how blessed is communion
With my Jesus, Savior, King!
When I hear His voice so tender,
And I tell Him ev’rything.
2 In the dawning light of morning,
Haste I to the mercy-seat;
Brighter than the rising sunbeam
Is the glory ‘round His feet! [Refrain]
3 When the noontide cares oppress me,
And the world forbids me rest,
Then I breathe the pray’r unspoken,
While I lean upon His breast. [Refrain]
4 Weary, ‘mid the shades of ev’ning,
Sighing over trials strong,
Then I feel His arm beneath me,
And my heart is filled with song. [Refrain]
5 In the light and in the shadow,
All the time and ev’rywhere,
I am needing this communion
Found alone in secret pray’r. [Refrain]Source: Honey Out of the Rock: a compilation of sacred songs and hymns for use in gospel meetings and other religious services #82
