S.M.


1
O BLESS√ąD living Lord,
Engage our hearts with Thee,
And strike within the answ'ring chord
To love so rich and free.
2
To know Thy loving heart,
And cleave to Thy blest side;
To gaze upon Thee where Thou art,
And in Thy love abide;
3
To walk with Thee below,
And learn Thy holy ways;
Each day more to Thy stature grow,
To Thine eternal praise -
4
Be this our whole desire -
Thyself our object here:
The goal to which our hearts aspire,
To meet Thee in the air.

G.W. Fraser (1840-1896)
