498 ~ Still, Still With Thee



1

Still, still with Thee, when purple morning breaketh,
When the bird waketh, and the shadow's flee;
Fairer than morning, lovelier than daylight,
Dawns the sweet consciousness, I am with Thee.


2

Alone with Thee, amid the mystic shadows,
The solemn hush of nature newly born;
Alone with Thee in breathless adoration,
In the calm dew and freshness of the morn.


3

Still, still with Thee! As to each newborn morning
A fresh and solemn splendor still is given,
So does this blessed consciousness, awaking,
Breathe each day nearness unto Thee and heaven.


4

So shall it be at last, in that bright morning,
When the soul waketh and life's shadows flee;
O in that hour, fairer than daylight dawning,
Shall rise the glorious thought, I am with Thee.
