L.M.


1
INTO Thy presence, Lord, we come,
And sit in stillness at Thy feet
To hear Thy word, so pure, so sweet,
And find in Thee our spirit's home:
2
By faith e'en now to see Thy face,
And hear Thy words of light and love -
Thy witness of the things above -
The substance, Thou, of truth and grace.
3
Thus to retire from all around,
And in Thy holy presence be,
Thy beauty, Lord, alone to see,
Thy blessèd voice the only sound.
4
For to our feeble path down here,
In love Thou dost delight to come;
Responsive love gives Thee a home,
Despised without, but welcome there!

J. Pellatt
