S.M.


1
LORD Jesus, we draw near,
In answer to Thy love;
For ever with Thyself we find
Our part and place above.
2
Enjoying now such bliss,
Beyond all words to say,
Thy glory we with joy behold,
Thy rest in brightest day.
3
Lord, we Thy longings know,
And willingly respond
As one with Thee - Thy flesh and bones,
A holy, heav'nly bond.
4
Our hearts as held by Thee
Vibrate with deep delight,
United to Thyself to be
Thy bride in glory bright.
5
Pure nard and frankincense
To Thee, O Lord, ascend
From Thine assembly - vessel filled -
Praise that shall never end.

J. LePanse, fr. French
