Peonies with O church of Christ! behold at last and I am Thine, O Lord, I have heard Thy voice

O church of Christ! behold at last
The promised sign appear-
The gospel preached in all the world;
And lo! the King draws near.

With girded loins, make haste, make haste,
Thy witness to complete;
That Christ may take His throne and bring
All nations to His feet.

And Thou, O Israel, long in dust,
Arise! and come away:
See how the Sun of Righteousness
Sheds forth the beams of day.

The scatter’d sons are gath’ring home,
The fig tree buds again;
A little while, and David’s Son
On David’s throne shall reign.

Then sing aloud, O Pilgrim church,
Brief conflict yet remains,
And then Immanuel descends
To bind thy foe in chains.

He shall reign from sea to sea,
When He girds on His conqu’ring sword;
All the ends of the earth shall see
The salvation of our God.
                      A. J. Gordon, D. D.

I am Thine, O Lord, I have heard Thy voice,
And it told Thy love to me;
But I long to rise in the arms of faith,
And be closer drawn to Thee.

Consecrate me now to Thy service, Lord,
By the pow’r of grace divine;
Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope,
And my will be lost in Thine.

O the pure delight of a single hour
That before Thy throne I spend,
When I kneel in pray’r, and with Thee my God,
I commune as friend with friend.

There are depths of love that I cannot know
Till I cross the narrow sea,
There are heights of joy that I may not reach
Till I rest in peace with Thee.

Draw me nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,
To the cross where Thou hast died;
Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer blessed Lord,
To Thy precious, bleeding side.

Fanny J. Crosby
