193 (L.M.) Anne Steele

Where is my God? does He retire

Beyond the reach of humble sighs?

Are these weak breathings of desire,

Too languid to ascend the skies?

No, Lord, the breathing of desire,

The weak petition, if sincere,

Is not forbidden to aspire,

But reaches Thy all-gracious ear.

Look up, my soul, with cheerful eye,

See where the great Redeemer stands,

The glorious Advocate on high,

With precious incense in His hands.

He sweetens every humble groan,

He recommends each broken prayer;

Recline thy hope on Him alone,

Whose pow'r and love forbid despair.

Teach my weak heart, O gracious Lord,

With stronger faith to call Thee mine;

Bid me pronounce the blissful word,

My Father, God, with joy divine.
