A closer walk with God ||TALK with us,Lord,Thyself reveal

MHB 461
1.O FOR a closer walk with God,
A calm and heavenly frame,
A light to shine upon the road
That leads me to the Lamb.

2. Where is the blessedness I knew
When first I saw the Lord?
Where is that soul-refreshing view
Of Jesus and His word?

3. What peaceful hours I once enjoyed
How sweet their memory still
But they have left an aching void        
The world can never fill.

4. Return, O holy Dove  return,
Sweet messenger of rest
I hate the sins that made Thee mourn,
And drove Thee from my breast.

5. The dearest idol I have known,
Whate'er that idol be,
Help me to tear it from
Thy throne, And worship only Thee.

6. So shall my walk be  close with God,
Calm and serene my frame;
So purer light shall mark the road
That leads me to the Lamb.

MHB 460
1.TALK with us,Lord,Thyself reveal,
While here o'er earth we rove;
Speak to our hearts, and let us feel
The kindling of Thy love.

2.With Thee conversing, we forget
All time, and toil, and care;
Labour is rest, and pain is sweet,
If Thou, my God, art here.

3.Here then, my God, vouchsafe to stay,
And bid my heart rejoice;
My bounding heart shall own Thy Away,
And echo to Thy voice.

4.Thou callest me to seek Thy face;
'Tis all I wish to seek;
To attend the whispers of Thy grace,
And hear Thee inly speak.

5.Let this my every hour employ,
Till I Thy glory see :
Enter into my Master's Joy,
And find my heaven in Thee.
Amen.
