1 O how dear the Saviour’s presence dwelling in my heart today;
How I love the blest communion we enjoy along the way,
And how gently does he lead me where the living waters flow,
In the pastures green, inviting, where the fragrant flowers grow.
Blessed Saviour, keep me near thee,
Tightly clasp my hand in thine;
When I call, O Svaiour, hear me,
Keep me by thy grace divine.
2 O how blest to walk beside him, hear his gentle tones repeat
Words of tender love and comfort in a voice so low and sweet;
And my heart with love runs over when his pierced hands I see,
When I think he died for sinners, suffered on the cross for me. [Chorus]
3 O how sweet to toil and suffer for the sake of Jesus’ love!
Pointing men to Christ, the Saviour, to the blessed home above,
And my soul is filled with gladness when I think of that blest day
When, with pain and sorrow ended, God shall wipe all tears away. [Chorus]
