1  Let me be with Thee, where Thou art,
My Saviour, my eternal rest!
Then only will this longing heart
Be fully and for ever blest!

2  Let me be with Thee, where Thou art,
Thine unveiled glory to behold!
Then only will this wand'ring heart
Cease to be faithless, treach'rous cold!

3  Let me be with Thee, where Thou art,
Where spotless saints Thy Name adore!
Then ony will this sinful heart
Be evil and defiled no more!

4  Let me be with Thee, where Thou art,
Where none can die, where none remove,
Where life nor death my soul can part
From Thy blest presence and Thy love!
