WALKING WITH GOD.
Gen. v. 24.
Oh! for a closer walk with God,
A calm and heavenly frame; A light to shine upon the road
That leads me to the Lamb ! Where is the blessedness I knew
When first I saw the Lord ? Where is the soul-refreshing view
Of Jesus and his word ? What peaceful hours I once enjoy'd ! How sweet their
still ! But they have left an aching void,
The world can never fill. Return, O holy Dove, return!
Sweet messenger of rest : I hate the sins that made thee mourn, And drove thee from
breast. The dearest idol I have known,
Whate'er that idol be,
And worship only thee.
