May this intimate communion
and fellowship with Christ impart to us each more and more of His own
spirit, so that the world may take knowledge of us, that we have “been
with Jesus”; and let the prayer of each be,
Jesus, make Thyself to me
living, bright reality!
More real to faith’s vision keen,
Than any earthly object seen;
More dear, more intimately nigh,
Than e’en the sweetest earthly tie.
