Animate me with joy
Lord's Day Evening, from the Valley of Vision.
Animate me with joy that in heaven praise
will never cease,
that adoration will continue for ever,
that no flesh will grow weary,
no congregations disperse,
no affections flag,
no thoughts wander,
no will droop,
but all will be adoring love.
Guard my mind from making ordinances
my stay or trust,
from hewing out broken cisterns,
from resting on outward helps.
Wing me through earthly forms to thy immediate
May my feeble prayers show me the emptiness
and vanity of my sins;
Deepen in me the conviction that my most fervent
and most lowly confessions, need to be
May my best services bring me nearer to the cross,
and prompt me to cry, ‘None but Jesus!’
