- Gathered to Thy name, Lord Jesus,
Losing sight of all but Thee,
Oh, what joy Thy presence gives us,
Calling up our hearts to Thee!
Yet with reverence we would linger
In the shadow of Thy cross,
Which has closed our hearts for ever
To the world and all its dross.
Loved with love which knows no measure
Save the Father's love to Thee,
Blessed Lord, our hearts would treasure
All the Father's thoughts of Thee.
Blood-bought, reconciled, forgiven,
Here Thy death we love to show,
Waiting till above in heaven
All Thy glory we shall know.
Oh, the joy, the wondrous singing
When we see Thee as Thou art,
Thy blest name, Lord Jesus, bringing
Sweetest music to God's heart!
Notes of gladness, songs unceasing,
Hymns of everlasting praise,
Psalms of glory, joy increasing,
Through God's endless day of days!
