PENITENCE
287
2 We have not feared Thee as we ought,   4 We have not served Thee as we ought;
Nor bowed beneath Thine awful eye,           Alas! the duties left undone,
Nor guarded deed, and word, and thought,    The work with little fervor wrought,
Remembering that God was nigh.                The battles lost, or scarcely won!
Lord, give us faith to know Thee near,       Lord, give the zeal, and give the might,
And grant the grace of holy fear.                For Thee to toil, for Thee to fight.
3 We have not loved Thee as we ought, Nor cared that we are loved by Thee;
Thy presence we have coldly sought, And feebly longed Thy face to see.
Lord, give a pure and loving heart
To feel and own the love Thou art.
S When shall we know Thee as we ought, And fear, and love, and serve aright!
When shall we, out of trial brought, Be perfect in the land of light!
Lord, may we day by day prepare To see Thy face, and serve Thee there.
Rev. Thomas B. Pollock, 1889
