Lyrics: . <br/>1. Still with Thee, O my Lord, <br/>I would desire to be, <br/>By day, by night, at home, abroad, <br/>I would be still with Thee. <br/> <br/>2. With Thee, when dawn comes in <br/>And calls me back to care, <br/>Each day returning to begin <br/>With Thee, my Lord, in prayer. <br/> <br/>3. With Thee, amid the crowd <br/>That throngs the busy mart, <br/>To hear Thy voice, 'mid clamour loud, <br/>Speak softly to my heart. <br/> <br/>4. With Thee, when day is done, <br/>And evening calms the mind; <br/>The set-ting, as the rising sun, <br/>With Thee my heart would find. <br/> <br/>5. With Thee, when darkness brings <br/>The signal of repose, <br/>Calm in the shadow of Thy wings, <br/>Mine eyelids I would close. <br/> <br/>6. With Thee, in Thee, by faith <br/>Abiding, I would be; <br/>By day, by night, in life, in death, <br/>I would be still with Thee. <br/> <br/>James Drummond Burns (1823-1864)
