Representative Text

1 While we walk with God in light,
God our hearts doth still unite;
Dearest fellowship we prove,
Fellowship in Jesus' love:

2 Sweetly each, with each combined,
In the bonds of duty joined,
Feels the cleansing blood applied,
Daily feels that Christ hath died.

3 Still, O Lord, our faith increase;
Cleanse from all unrighteousness;
Thee the unholy cannot see,
Make, O make us meet for thee;

4 Every vile affection kill,
Root out every seed of ill,
Utterly abolish sin,
Write thy law of love within.

5 Hence may all our actions flow,
Love the proof that Christ we know;
Mutual love the token be,
Lord, that we belong to thee:

6 Love, thine image, love impart,
Stamp it now on every heart;
Only love to us be given;
Love, the crowning grace of heaven.
