Hope.                              399
Let me be with Thee where Thou art, Where none can die, where none remove ;
There neither death nor life will part Me from Thy Presence and Thy love !
Charlotte Elliott. 1836.
O Lord, how little do we know, How little of Thy Presence feel,
While we continue here below, And in these earthly houses dwell!
When will these veils of flesh remove, And not eclipse our sight of God ?
When wilt Thou take us up above, To see Thy face without a cloud ?
Show Thy omnipotence to save!
The characters of sin efface ! Thine image on our hearts engrave,
And let us feel Thy sweet embrace !
Dart in our hearts a heavenly ray, A ray which still may shine more bright,
Increasing to the perfect day, Till we awake in endless light!
Then shall each Star become a Sun,
Fill'd with a lustre all Divine ; Each shall possess a radiant crown,
And to eternal ages shine.
William Hammond. 1745.
