Take time to behold Him

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.
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.
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.
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.

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!

I really enjoyed this song because it tells us how we need to take some time to love and spend time with the Lord. My favorite stanza is 2. It says that the world rushes on while we spend time loving the Lord! Hallelujah!

The forth stanza is my favourite, because everytime I am getting mad, there is always a song singing in the deepest place in my heart to tell me that "take time to behold Him, be calm in thy soul, each thought and each temper, beneath His control", just by thinking and giving everything to the Lord, I always can keep calm. For each time I sing this song to myself, I know that my whole being is occupied by Him and beneath His control!!!! Praise the Lord!!! and also, this hymn encourages me to spend more personal time with Jesus, so that I can be more perfected and filled with the Holy Spirit!!!!

I love this song. It is a reminder that I need to make time, to take time to enjoy the Lord. I pray that we can all have the time afforded to us by the Lord himself to come to Him, to just call on Him and enjoy Him. Oh, what a rescue to just come to Him and call! This has been my experience since this past weekend. I enjoyed the Lord at a college-age conference in Fort Yargo, GA. It was so wonderful to take the time to behold Him, to not have to worry about work or school the whole time.

Just before the Lord's coming back we all must give our time and lives presented unto Him. we have to take time to behold to our Lover, Christ. enjoying Him to the uttermost. pray for each locality around the world, so that everyone of us can bring back the Lord. B&S! we need to be todays Nazarites! purified and reconstituted by Him.
