Text (1846) by Thomas Hornblower Gill (1819-1906)

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Our God, our God, thou shinest here,

Thine own this latter day;

To us thy radiant steps appear,

Here goes thy glorious way!

To us thy radiant steps appear,

Here goes thy glorious way!

+++++

We shine not only with the light

Thou sheddest down of yore;

On us thou streamest strong and bright,

Thy comings are not o’er.

On us thou streamest strong and bright,

Thy comings are not o’er.

+++++

The fathers had not all of thee,

New births are in thy grace;

All open to our souls shall be

Thy glory’s hiding-place.

All open to our souls shall be

Thy glory’s hiding-place.

+++++

Thou comest near; thou standest by;

Our work begins to shine;

Thou dwellest with us mightily,–

On come the years divine!

Thou dwellest with us mightily,–

On come the years divine!
