We would be absent from the flesh,
And present, Lord, with thee.

With thee, my Lord and God.

WITH thee, Lord, while I remain, Thou wilt near thy child abide,

Till, thy perfect aim to attain,
, I am wholly sanctified:
All my wants, all my distress,
I'll to thee, my Lord, confess;
Soon will come the happy day,
When all tears are wiped away.
2. Amen, yea, Hallelujah,
Jesus, praise to thee be giv'n,
That a place for me, thro' grace,
Is by thee prepar'd in heaven:

When I shall behold thy face,
And, from pain and sorrow free,
Live for evermore with thee.

What joy and happiness,
Lord, shall we then possess,
When we adore thee,
With angels fall before thee,
And see thy face:

Absent from him I roam,
Yet nightly pitch my moving tent
A day's march nearer home.

Home of my soul! how near
At times to faith's foreseeing eye,
Thy golden gates appear.

To reach the land of love,
The bright inheritance of saints,
Jerusalem above.
5. Yet clouds will intervene,
And all my prospect flies;
Like Noah’s dove, I flit between
Rough seas and stormy skies. "

6. Anon the clouds dispart;
The winds and waters cease;
And sweetly o'er my gladden’d heart
Expands the bow of peace.
7. “For ever with the Lord l?”
Father, if 'tis thy will,
The promise of that faithful word
Even now to me fulfil.
8. Be thou at my right hand,
Then I can never fail:
Uphold thou me, and I shall stand;
Fight, and I must prevail.
9. So, when my latest breath
Shall rend this wail in twain,
By death I shall escape from death,
And life eternal gain.
10. Knowing as I am known,
How shall I love that word,
And oft repeat before thy throne:
“For ever with the Lord '''
