The Hymnal 1982 332
O God, unseen yet ever near
- st. flavian
- Edward Osler, 1768-1863
1 O God, unseen yet ever near, thy presence may we feel; and thus inspired with holy fear, before thine altar kneel.
2 Here may thy faithful people know the blessings of thy love, the streams that through the desert flow, the manna from above.
3 We come, obedient to thy word, to feast on heavenly food; our meat the Body of the Lord, our drink his precious Blood.
4 Thus may we all thy word obey, for we, O God, are thine; and go rejoicing on our way, renewed with strength divine.
