382 (C.M.)

Oh, could I find, from day to day,

A nearness to my God;

Then should my hours glide sweet away,

And live upon Thy word.

Lord, I desire with Thee to live

Anew, from day to day,

In joys the world can never give,

Nor ever take away.

O Jesus, come and rule my heart,

And make me wholly Thine;

And never, never more depart,

But be forever mine.

Thus, 'til my last expiring breath,

Thy goodness I'd adore;

And when my flesh dissolves in death,

My soul shall love Thee more.

Through boundless grace, I then shall spend

An everlasting day

In the embraces of my Friend,

Who took my guilt away.

That worthy name shall have the praise,

To whom all praise is due;

While every ransomed soul shall gaze

On scenes forever new.
