Prosperous Presence


Tune: Coe Fen

('How shall I sing that majesty?')


Lord, may my heart your dwelling place

Be, come to every race

Give repentance, spiritual light

Darkness clear from our sight

And open ears to hear you true

And thus to follow you

Sensing, sensitive may we be

Your guiding footsteps see


Here by your grace, your salvation

Shown to every nation

You who know the hearts of all men

All children all women

Remind, refresh us, forgiveness

You bring us, us do bless

Sharing with us your love, mercies

Working as how you please


Peace, peace, my heart, and quiet mind

Rest in Christ you shall find

In faith help us to trust in you

And come to you anew

Leas us your way, your paths be plain

That we shall see again

Clearly, and so to you praise give

In you we move and live

    He certainly searches the heart.

      Thanks 2. A bit of a tricky hymn tune there! heehee. Took me a while to learn it.
      He searches the mind too? Nothing in my mind until a light bulb says 'Idea!' lol

        Now you have me slightly worried!

      • Neville

        This is probably a fine hymn poem

        • orchidee

          Thanks N. Yes probably, though I can't say the title after a gin or three - prosperoush preshench - good acting there from me, innit? lol.

          How does Fido feel about being left out? It says every man and woman but not dog. I think dogs are nobler than most people. lol

            Thanks SB. Aww, I should have said 'every creature'. Humans are 'creatures' too (created beings), thought the word is used somewhat derogatory of humans, as in 'you wretched creature, you'. KP is turning into some sort of mutant creature - an old trout like being. lol.
