In sweet communion, Lord, with you
I constantly abide;
my hand you hold within your own
to keep me near your side.
Your counsel through my earthly way
shall guide me and control,
and then to glory afterward
you will receive my soul.
Whom have I, Lord, in heaven but you,
to whom my thoughts aspire?
And, having you, what more on earth
is there I can desire?
Though flesh and heart should faint and fail,
the Lord will ever be
the strength and portion of my heart,
my God eternally.
To live apart from God is death;
’tis good his face to seek.
My refuge is the living God;
his praise I long to speak.
