Acquaint thyself with God! - Divine acquaintanceship
(Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Divine acquaintanceship.

1. Acquaint thyself with God!
  Know thou his tender love;
so shall the healing sunshine fall
  upon thee from above.

2. Acquaint thyself with God!
  In him alone is peace, –
rest for the weary child of time,
  and everlasting bliss.

3. Acquaint thyself with God!
  Choose thou the better part;
so shall his heavenly sunlight be
  the day-spring of thy heart.

4. Acquaint thyself with God!
  He bids thee seek his face,
that thus thy youthful soul may taste
  the sweetness of his grace.

5. Acquaint thyself with God!
  In Jesus and his cross
read there that love which makes all loss
  but gain, all gain but loss.

6. Acquaint thyself with God
  in childhood's joyous prime;
so shall thy life a foretaste prove
  of heaven's long summer-time.

Horatius Bonar, The Song of the New Creation, 1872, 48-49.
There the hymn is divided in three 8-line-stanzas.
