Oh, for a closer walk with God,
A calm and heav’nly 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 soulrefreshing view
Of Jesus and His word?
What peaceful hours I once enjoyed!
How sweet their mem’ry still!
But they have left an aching void
The world can never fill.
