Alone with thee! Alone with thee! - Alone with Christ
(Ray Palmer/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Alone with Christ.

"I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you."
(John 14,18)

1. Alone with thee!   Alone with thee!
          O Friend divine!
  Thou Friend of friends to me most dear,
   though all unseen I feel thee near,
    and with the love that knows no fear,
          I call thee mine.


2. Alone with thee!   Alone with thee!
          Now through my breast
  there steals a breath like breath of balm
   that healing brings and holy calm,
    that soothes like chanted song or psalm
          and makes me blessed.

3. Alone with thee!   Alone with thee!
          Thy grace more sweet
  than music in the twilight still,
   than airs that groves of spices fill,
    more fresh than dews on Hermon's hill,
          my soul doth greet.

4. Alone with thee!   Alone with thee!
          In thy pure light
  the splendid pomps and shows of time,
   the tempting steeps that pride would climb,
    the peaks where glory rests sublime,
          pale on my sight.

5. Alone with thee!   Alone with thee!
          My softened heart
  floats on the flood of love divine,
   feels all its wishes drowned in thine,
    content that every good is mine
          thou canst impart.

6. Alone with thee!   Alone with thee!
          I want no more
  to make my earthly bliss complete,
   than oft my Lord unseen to meet;
    for sight I wait till tread my feet
          yon glistering shore.

7. Alone with thee!   Alone with thee!
          There not alone,
  but with all saints, the mighty throng,
   my soul unfettered, pure, and strong,
    her high communings shall prolong
          before thy throne.

1867.
