L. M.

Moravian.

Aspiration.
186

O, Draw me, Father, after Thee!

So shall I run and never tire;

With gracious words still comfort me;

Be Thou my hope, my sole desire;

Free me from every weight; nor fear

Nor sin can come, if Thou art near.

From all eternity, with love

Unchangeable Thou hast me viewed;

Ere knew this beating heart to move,

Thy tender mercies me pursued;

Ever with me may they abide,

And close me in on every side.

In suffering be Thy love my peace;

In weakness be Thy love my power;

And when the storms of life shall cease,

O Father! in my latest hour,

In death as life, be Thou my guide,

And draw me closer to Thy side.
