O for a closer walk with God,
A calm and heavnly frame;
A light to shine upon the road
That leads me to the Lamb.

What peaceful hours I once enjoyd!
How sweet their memry still!
But they have left an aching void
The world can never fill.

The dearest idol I have known,
Whateer that idol be,
Help me to tear it from thy throne,
And worship only thee.
