6.4.6.4.6.6.6.4.


1
NOUGHT is detaining us,
Lord, in earth's sphere;
Thy love constraining us,
We have drawn near.
Thou hast this love expressed,
Now in Thy beauty dressed
We can be found at rest
Joyfully here.
2
Lord, Thy desire we know
As Spirit-taught;
That love which Thou dost show
Finds what it sought!
Our heart Thyself enthrones;
Hark to the heav'nly tones!
We, of Thy flesh and bones -
O what a thought!
3
Lord, in this vessel chaste
Incense is found;
All that delights Thy taste
Doth here abound.
Thou, Lord, the bridegroom art!
Now from the loving heart
Of Thy blest counterpart
Praises resound.

Mrs. H.A. Berg
