to Thy name, Lord Jesus,
GATHERED to Thy name, Lord Jesus,
Losing sight of all but
Oh, what joy Thy presence gives us,
Calling up our
hearts to Thee!
Yet with reverence we would linger
In the shadow of Thy
Which has closed our hearts for ever
To the world
and all its dross.
Loved with love which knows no measure
Save the Father’s
love to Thee,
Blessed Lord, our hearts would treasure
the Father’s thoughts of Thee.
Blood-bought, reconciled, forgiven,
Here Thy death we love to
Waiting till above in heaven
All Thy glory we shall
Oh, the joy, the wondrous singing
When we see Thee as Thou
Thy blest name, Lord Jesus, bringing
Sweetest music to
Notes of gladness, songs unceasing,
Hymns of everlasting
Psalms of glory, joy increasing,
endless day of days!
