345 (C.M.) John Newton

O, happy they who know the Lord,

With whom He deigns to dwell!

He feeds and cheers them by His Word —

His arm supports them well.

To them, in each distressing hour,

His throne of grace is near;

And when they plead His love and pow'r,

He stands engaged to hear.

His presence sweetens all our cares,

And makes our burdens light;

A word from Him dispels our fears,

And gilds the gloom of night.

Lord, we expect to suffer here,

Nor would we dare repine;

But give us, still, to find Thee near;

And own us, still, for Thine!

Let us enjoy and highly prize

These tokens of Thy love,

'Til Thou shalt bid our spirits rise,

To dwell with Thee above.
