Representative Text

1 O could I sing from day to day,
A nearness to my God;
Then should my hours glide sweet away,
And live upon thy word.

2 Lord I desire with thee to live,
Anew from day to day;
In joys the world can never give,
Nor ever take away.

3 O Jesus come and rule my heart,
And I'll be wholly thine;
And never, never more depart,
For thou art wholly mine.

4 Thus till my last expiring breath,
Thy goodness I'll adore;
And when my flesh dissolves in death,
My soul shall love thee more.

5 Thro' boundless grace I then shall spend
An everlasting day,
In the embraces of my friend,
Who took my guilt away.

6 That worthy name shall have the praise,
To whom all praise is due;
While angels and archangels gaze,
On scenes forever new.

Divine Hymns of Spiritual Songs, 1802
