I would commune with Thee, my God
I would commune with Thee, my God. George Burden Bubier* (1823-1869).
First published in Hymns and Sacred Songs for Sunday-schools and Social Worship (Manchester, 1855), edited by Bubier himself with George MacDonald* and Charles MacDonald (1823-1905). It was dated ‘February 2nd, 1854’. It had four stanzas:
I would commune with Thee, my God, E’en to Thy seat I come;I leave my joys, I leave my sins, And seek in Thee my home.
I stand upon the mount of God; With sunlight in my soul; I hear the storms in vales beneath, I hear the thunders roll.
But I am calm with Thee, my God, Beneath these glorious skies;And to the height on which I stand, Nor storms nor clouds can rise.
