L.M.


1
OUR hearts Thou dost console, O Lord,
Thou who affordest heav'nly light;
Thy Spirit speaks to us Thy word,
And dwells with us throughout the night.
2
Thy voice, O Lord, is near at hand;
The Spirit gives us access free;
He helps us here to understand,
And moves our hearts with thoughts of Thee.
3
The memory of Thy wondrous love
Thine own still treasure here below;
While in this waste, from heav'n above
Thy glory and Thy grace we know.
4
Thine is the world of life, where more
By far than Eshcol's grapes is found:
Refreshment, strength, from Thy vast store
We have, despite the barren ground.
5
But soon the Spirit's gentle grace
In service shall completed be;
And we in light, and face to face -
Thou Holy One - shall speak to Thee.

From French
