Representative Text

1 Thou, Saviour, from thy throne on high
Enrobed in light and girt with power,
Dost note the thought, the prayer, the sign,
Of hearts that love the tranquil hour.

2 Oft thou thyself didst steal away
At eventide, from labor done,
In some still, peaceful shade to pray
Till morning watches were begun.

3 Thou hast not, dearest Lord, forgot
Thy wrestling on Judea's hills;
And still thou lovest the quiet spot
Where praise the lowly spirit fills.

4 Now to our souls, withdrawn awhile
From earth's rude noise, thy face reveal;
And, as we worship, kindly smile,
And for thine own our spirits seal.

5 To thee we bring each grief and care,
To thee we fly while tempests lower;
Thou wilt the weary burdens bear
Of hearts that love the tranquil hour.
