Beautiful and easy communion anthem with organ and four handbells.
Text by Edward Osler.
Unison or 2-part (equal voices).
O God, unseen yet ever near,
Thy presence may we feel;
And thus inspired with holy fear,
Before Thine altar kneel.
Here may Thy faithful people know
The blessings of Thy love,
The streams that through the desert flow,
The manna from above.
Thus may we all Thy Word obey,
For we, O God, are Thine;
And go rejoicing on our way,
Renewed with strength divine.
