Take time to behold Him

1
Take time to behold Him,
  Speak oft with Thy Lord,
Abide in Him always,
  And feed on His Word.
Wait thou in His presence,
  Submissive and meek,
Forgetting in nothing
  His blessing to seek.
2
Take time to behold Him,
  The world rushes on;
Spend much time in secret
  With Jesus alone.
By looking to Jesus
  Like Him thou shalt be;
Thy friends, in thy conduct,
  His likeness shall see.
3
Take time to behold Him,
  Let Him be thy guide;
And run not before Him
  Whatever betide;
In joy or in sorrow
  Still follow thy Lord,
And, looking to Jesus,
  Still trust in His Word.
4
Take time to behold Him,
  Be calm in thy soul,
Each thought and each temper
  Beneath His control.
Thus led by His Spirit
  To fountains of love,
Thou then shalt be fitted
  His mercy to prove.

I like hymns that mention time. Because life is short, and when we realize that, it's nice to have the guidance of a hymn remind us that our time with Him is what means the most...

Whatever we behold we reflect...and whatever we love we become...Let us behold Him to reflect Him and love Him to match Him to become His counterpart whom He is so longing for! Lord Jesus! We want to allow You to love us more so we can love You more so we open up our entire being for You to fill us inch by inch with Yourself. Grant to us the capacity to be still in Your presence so we can just behold You to reflect You in order for others to be drawn to You, Lord. We love You Lord Jesus. Amen.

We always have difficult situations in our lives. Many times we are angry and upset, because Satan always trying to frustrate us. May we follow Lord Jesus always, may we take Him as the cross, to deny ourselves, and let God to express Him on ourselves. Amen.

I always listen to this song without noticing the words of the song until today. I felt even more touched and supported after reading and singing with it.

This song is so rich and whenever I sing it, You can feel the Lord's presence. It's so important to see how much we need the Lord in our daily lives and how we must take the time to just behold Him. Praise the Lord!
