L. M.


The Presence of Jesus.

When, blest Redeemer, thou art near,

The soul enjoys a sacred peace:

Thy presence calms our every fear,

And gives from every doubt release.

Be with us now, in truth and love,

In strength that conquers every sin;

O, cleanse, and bless, and lift above,

And may thy cross our hearts still win.

In suffering may we strength receive

From memory of thy victory won;

In doubt our drooping hopes revive;—

Thus be thy presence with us shown!

Be ever near our spirits, Lord;

And, drawn by sympathy, may we

Still, through thy cross, thy life, thy word,

In faith and love come near to thee!
