O Could I Find from Day to Day

by Benjamin Cleavland (1733–1811)
(#656 in the Baptist Psalmody, 1850)

O Could I Find from Day to Day

 

1.   O could I find, from day to day,
         A nearness to my God,
      Then would my hours glide sweet away,
         While leaning on His Word.

2.   Lord, I desire with Thee to live
         Anew from day to day,
      In joys the world can never give,
         Nor ever take away.

3.   Blest Jesus, come, and rule my heart,
         And make me wholly Thine,
      That I may never more depart,
         Nor grieve Thy love divine.

4.   Thus, till my last, expiring breath,
         Thy goodness I'll adore;
      And when my frame dissolved in death,
         My soul shall love Thee more.
