God Ever Near.
71

As the sun’s enlivening eye

Shines on every place the same;

So the Lord is always nigh

To the souls that love His name.

When they move at duty’s call,

He is with them by the way;

He is ever with them all,

Those who go and those who stay.

From His holy mercy-seat

Nothing can their souls confine;

Still in spirit they may meet,

And in sweet communion join.

Father, hear our humble prayer!

Tender Shepherd of Thy sheep,

Let Thy mercy and Thy care

All our souls in safety keep.

In Thy strength may we be strong;

Sanctify each cross and pain;

Give us, if Thou wilt, ere long

Here to meet in peace again.
