O blessed, living Lord

1
O blessed, living Lord,
  Engage our hearts with Thee,
And strike within some answ’ring chord
  To love so rich and free!
2
To know Thy loving heart!
  To cleave to Thy blest side!
To gaze upon Thee where Thou art,
  And in Thy love abide!
3
To walk with Thee below!
  To learn Thy holy ways!
And more to Thine own stature grow,
  To Thine eternal praise!
4
Thyself our one Desire!
  Thyself our Object here!
The goal to which our hearts aspire—
  To meet Thee in the air!
