This hymn has a unique tune.


O blessed, living Lord,

Engage our hearts with Thee,

And strike within some answ'ring chord

To love so rich and free!


To know Thy loving heart!

To cleave to Thy blest side!

To gaze upon Thee where Thou art,

And in Thy love abide!


To walk with Thee below!

To learn Thy holy ways!

And more to Thine own stature grow,

To Thine eternal praise!


Thyself our one Desire!

Thyself our Object here!

The goal to which our hearts aspire —

To meet Thee in the air!
