WHEN THE LORD OF LOVE WAS HERE

1.WHEN the Lord of Love was here,

Happy hearts to Him were dear, 

Though. His heart was sad; 

Worn and lonely for our sake, 

Yet He turned aside to make 

All the weary glad.


2.Meek and lowly were His ways;

From His loving, grew His praise,

From His giving, prayer : 

All the outcasts thronged to hear; 

All the sorrowful drew near

To enjoy His care.


3.When He walked the fields,He drew 

From the flowers, and birds, and dew,

Parables of God; For within His heart of love 

All the soul of man -did move,God had His abode.


4.Fill us, Lord, with Thy desire

All the sinful to inspire

With the Father's life; 

Free us from the cares that press 

On the heart of worldllness,

From the fret and strife.


5.Lord, be ours Thy power to keep,

In the very heart of grief

And In trial, love; 

In our meekness to be wise, 

And through sorrow to arise

To our God above.      

Amen.
