Christ My Song - 1178
Forth from the dark and stormy sky - Second Sunday after Trinity (Reginald Heber/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
Second Sunday after Trinity.
1. Forth from the dark and stormy sky,
Lord, to thine altar's shade we fly;
forth from the world, its hope and fear,
Saviour, we seek thy shelter here:
weary and weak, thy grace we pray:
turn not, O Lord! thy guests away! PDF - Midi
2. Long have we roamed in want and pain,
long have we sought thy rest in vain!
Wildered in doubt, in darkness lost,
long have our souls been tempest-tossed:
low at thy feet our sins we lay;
turn not, O Lord! thy guests away!
Reginald Heber, Heber's Hymns, 1870, 54.
