 1O for a closer walk with God
 2.i William Cowper
 3
 4.1
 5O for a closer walk with God,
 6a calm and heavenly frame,
 7a light to shine upon the road
 8that leads me to the Lamb.
 9
10.2
11Where is the blessedness I knew
12when I first saw the Lord?
13Where is that
14soul-refreshing view
15of Jesus and His word?
16
17.3
18What peaceful hours
19I once enjoyed!
20how sweet their memory still!
21But they have left an aching void
22the world can never fill.
23
24.4
25Return, O holy Dove! return,
26sweet messenger of rest!
27I hate the sins
28that made Thee mourn,
29and drove Thee from my breast.
30
31.5
32The dearest idol I have known,
33whate'er that idol be,
34help me to tear it
35from Thy throne,
36and worship only Thee.
37
38.6
39So shall my walk
40be close with God,
41calm and serene my frame;
42so purer light shall mark the road
43that leads me to the Lamb.
44.
