Description

An SAB arrangement (with organ) of the Stanford classic.  Very lovely and easily learned. Text by William Cowper (1772).

O for a closer walk with God,
A calm and heavenly frame,
A light to shine upon the road
That leads me to the Lamb!

Return, O holy Dove, return,
Sweet messenger of rest!

I hate the sins that made Thee mourn

And drove Thee from my breast.

 
So shall my walk be close with God,
Calm and serene my frame;

So purer light shall mark the road
 
That leads me to the Lamb.
