8.8.6.8.8.6.


1
WE love, Lord Jesus, to recall
Thyself, for Thou hast giv'n Thine all
For us on Calv'ry's tree.
To Thee in thankfulness we turn,
With souls that glow, with hearts that yearn
Thy glory, Lord, to see.
2
By love constrained, Thy death we deem
Our point of severance from this scene
Where man Thy rights did spurn;
To us earth stands in shadow now,
(For Thou art absent), until Thou,
Lord Jesus, shalt return.
3
No earth-bound prospect would we know,
But stand expectant, while we show
Thy death as years roll on.
Thy perfect love our strength shall be
To hold in faith and constancy
The ground that Thou hast won.

Miss F.J. Elwood
