Representative Text

1 Lord, my heart is rested, strengthened,
By this quiet hour with Thee;—
In the sunshine of Thy presence,
Earthly glom and shadows flee.

Lord, while still on earth a pilgrim,
I would in Thy love abide;
Safely through life’s shades and sunshine,
Keep me ever near Thy side.

2 Here Thy peace like music stealing,
Stills all discord, tumult, strife,—
Fills the heat with tender yearnings
For a nobler, sweeter life. [Refrain]

3 For more perfect self-surrender,
For a closer walk with Thee!
For a meek and quiet spirit,
Form all carnal sins set free. [Refrain]
