Hymn Selection



LORD! let us wait for Thee alone:
Our life be only this -
To serve Thee here on earth, unknown;
Then share Thy heavnenly bliss.
Lord, we would wait, in labour still
In Thy blest service here:
What Thou hast giv'n us to fulfil -
Thy will - to us is dear!
We well can wait! Thou waitest yet
The word of that dread hour,
Which shall Thy foes for ever set
As footstool of Thy power.
Yet, Lord! were once Thy will fulfilled,
How better far with Thee,
With Thee, our joy, our strength, our shield,
In cloudless light to be.
Lord, be it soon! Thou know'st our heart,
In this sad world, no rest
Can find nor wish but where Thou art:
That rest itself possessed!
