1. Now from the world withdrawn,
For fellowship with Thee;
May each, O Lord, before Thy throne,
From earthly cares be free.
2. Possess our every thought,
And teach our minds to pray;
Help us to worship as we ought,
And thus conclude the day.
3. Our strength may we renew,
And lift our hearts above;
That, while life’s journey we pursue,
We still may walk in love.
4. Then, in our latter end,
If death shall close our eyes,
Thy mercy will our souls attend,
And bear them to the skies.
