Hymn Selection



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:
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.
Thus to retire from all around,
And in Thy holy presence be,
Thy beauty, Lord, alone to see,
Thy blessèd voice the only sound.
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!
