O for a closer walk with God


    • O for a closer walk with God, 
    • A calm and heavenly frame, 
    • A light to shine upon the road 
    • That leads me to the Lamb. 

    • Where is the blessèdness I knew 
    • When I first saw the Lord? 
    • Where is that soul-refreshing view 
    • Of Jesus and His word? 

    • What peaceful hours I once enjoyed! 
    • How sweet their memory still! 
    • But they have left an aching void 
    • The world can never fill. 

    • Return, O holy Dove! return, 
    • Sweet messenger of rest! 
    • I hate the sins that made Thee mourn, 
    • And drove Thee from my breast. 

    • The dearest idol I have known, 
    • Whate'er that idol be, 
    • Help me tear if from Thy throne, 
    • And worship only Thee. 

    • So shall my walk be close with God, 
    • Calm and serene my frame; 
    • So purer light shall mark the road 
    • That leads me to the Lamb
