1
AS in Thy presence, Lord, our spirits free,
Thy brethren now respond with joy to Thee;
We answer to Thy call in kindship's place,
And near to Thee we know Thine own embrace.
2
"My brethren" - Lord, these precious words are Thine.
What glorious thoughts now flow in light divine,
As, in this nearness, yielding Thee Thy joy,
We raise our song to Thee - our blest employ!
3
We praise Thee, blessèd Lord; our souls would move
With joy to answer to Thy precious love.
We taste of heav'nly joys with Thee - how blest!
Thine own heart satisfied, and ours at rest.

W.C. Powell
