O 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 soul-refreshing view
Of Jesus and His Word?

What peaceful hours I then enjoyed!
How sweet their mem’ry still!
But now I find an aching void
The world can never fill.
