Hymn Divine Presence

448 Imploring the Divine Presence

CLOUDS and darkness interposing,
Keep the Saviour from my sight,
Wonted joys and pleasures closing,
Lord, again restore the light:
Scatter thou the storms o’erspreading,
And thy lovely face reveal;
Oh regard my humble pleading,
Nor thy presence hence conceal.

2 Deign to shine with beams resplendent,
Fill my heart with sacred joy,
All my labouring thoughts employ:
I will then in low prostration,
At thy sacred footstool fall,
And in songs of adoration,
Own thee sovereign Lord of all.
