Send a Blessing 369

Tune: Benjamin Franklin White and Dr. Lewis L. Ledbetter, 1859
Alto: added in 1902
Lyrics: John Gambold, 1748
Meter: 10s,11s (10,11,10,11)
O tell me no more of this worlds vain store,
The time for such trifles with me now is oer.
A country Ive found, where true joys abound,
To dwell Im determined on that happy ground.

Chorus:

Send a blessing just now.

No mortal will know what Christ doth bestow,
What life, strength, and comfort do after Him go;
Lo! onward I move to see Christ above,
None guesses how wondrous my journey will prove.

(Chorus)
