Hymn 27 - "Lord, we do not ask the question,"


Lord, we do not ask the question,

 Where abidest Thou?

Well we know where Thou art dwelling,

Well we know it now.



Thou abidest in the bosom

Of the Father's love;

In that love for ever living—

Love, all thought above.



 And we know that Thou wouldst have us

Ever dwell with Thee,

In that holy, heav'nly circle,

Home of liberty.



Lord, we thank Thee, this our portion

While we wait for Thee :

Now to live in love unbounded,

And eternally.



Hold our hearts, O Lord, we pray Thee,

By and in Thy love,

Till we dwell with Thee in glory

Evermore above.
