« Prev Lord, let the gladdening breezes Next »

David Williams

In most of his hymns he keeps the same figure or phrase through all his verses. In the following he sings of the 'breezes of Mount Zion':

Lord, let the gladdening breezes

Revive this soul of mine,

And raise it, weak and wearied,

To Heaven's air benign:

The breeze will break and scatter

The clouds that hang so low;

I long to feel its freshness--

From heaven let it blow!

The breezes of Mount Zion

Kindle the holy flame;

The breezes of Mount Zion

Renew the feeble frame:

Oft in the breeze of Zion

My soul with song would fill;

And I shall yet be singing,

Before I reach the hill.

The breezes of Mount Zion

Shall fill the sails again;

And lift the stranded vessel

To voyage o'er the main:

The breezes of Mount Zion

Leave all the sky aglow;--

In Canaan's sunny valleys

No cold winds ever blow.
