2  Where is the blessedness I knew
When first I saw the Lord? Where is the soul-refreshing view Of Jesus and His word?
3  Return, 0 holy Dove; return,
Sweet messenger of rest: I hate the sins that made Thee mourn And drove Thee from my breast.
4  The dearest idol I have known, Whate'er that idol be,
Help me to tear it from Thy throne, And worship only Thee.
5  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.
William Cowpbr, 1772
f 2 For Thee, my God, the living God, My thirsty soul doth pine; O, when shall I behold Thy face Thou Majesty divine! 3 Why restless, why cast down, my soul? Trust God, who will employ His aid for thee, and change these sighs To thankful hymns of joy.
4  God of my strength, how long shall I,
Like one forgotten, mourn, Forlorn, forsaken, and exposed To my oppressor's scorn?
5  Why restless, why cast down, my soul?
Hope still; and thou shalt sing The praise of Him Who is thy God, Thy health's eternal spring.
Tate and Brady, 1696
