From the darkness and the perils
Of a world by Satan swayed
Peace we find in God’s own presence,
Where our minds on Him are stayed;
Leaving thoughts that once distressed us,
Holy themes our tongues employ;
Grace and truth are known in Jesus,
By Whose blood we are brought nigh.
Gone the heaviness and mourning,
Now the Unction from on high,
With our Saviour’s peerless glories
Fills our souls with deepening joy;
Thence ascending sweetest incense,
Fragrant offerings to His praise,
Joyful in His presence, bless we
God our Father for His grace.
Loved with love none e’er can measure.
As the Father loves the Son,
We respond from hearts that treasure
Wonders love Divine has done;
And the Saviour comes to take us
To the Home prepared above,
Where, in presence of His radiance,
Song outflows inspired by love.
