Walking with God. Gen 5:24
William Cowper


Walking with GOD. Gen 5:24

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 once enjoyed!

How sweet their memory still!

But they have left an aching void,

The world can never fill.

Return, O holy Dove, return,

Sweet messenger of rest;

I hate the sins that made thee mourn,

And drove thee from my breast.

The dearest idol I have known,

Whate'er that idol be;

Help me to tear it from thy throne,

And worship only thee.

So shall my walk be close with God,

Calm and serene my frame;

So purer light shall mark the road

That leads me to the Lamb.
