VI. Let Me Be with Thee
By Charlotte Elliott (1789–1871)
 
1836

LET me be with Thee where Thou art,
My Saviour, my eternal Rest;
Then only will this longing heart
Be fully and for ever blest.
 
Let me be with Thee where Thou art;        5
Thy unveiled glory to behold;
Then only will this wayward heart
Cease to be treacherous, faithless, cold.
 
Let me be with Thee where Thou art,
Where spotless saints Thy Name adore;        10
Then only will this sinful heart
Be evil and defiled no more.
 
Let me be with Thee where Thou art,
Where none can die, whence none remove,
Then only will this cleansèd heart        15
Reflect the fulness of Thy love.
