1
FROM scenes of conflict, burden, grief and care,
To Thy blest presence, Lord, we now repair;
Thy shadow here provides a calm retreat,
Where sympathies divine our frailty meet.
2
To Thee the cause of every sigh is known,
Thou who dost feel the sorrows of Thine own;
Unspoken fears, and questions hard to solve,
Before the rays of heav'nly light dissolve.
3
Thy well-proved love our confidence inspires
To count upon the grace that never tires;
So would we make Thine interests, Lord, our care,
And with thanksgiving wait on Thee in prayer.

W. Lawrence
