“Thus saith the Lord, I remember thee.” Jer. 2. 2

T. Kelly   L.M.

1
O where is now that glowing love
That marked our union with the Lord?
Our hearts were fixed on things above,
Nor could the world one joy afford.

2
So strange did love like his appear,
That love that made him bear the cross,
No other subject pleased our ear;
The world for this appeared but loss.

3
Where is the zeal that led us then
To make the Saviour’s glory known;
That freed us from the fear of men,
And kept our eye on him alone?

4
Where are the happy seasons spent
In fellowship with him we loved?
The sacred joy, the sweet content,
The blessedness that then we proved?

5
Behold, again we turn to thee;
O cast us not away, though vile!
No peace we have, no joy we see,
O Lord our God, but in thy smile.
