Take Us Up Lord Jesus!

The way, the truth and the life!
The way, the truth and the life!

O take us up Lord Jesus,
Up on the holy mount;
Into the cloud of Presence,
Where we with God may meet,
O cleanse and sanctify us,
And make us pure within;
So that we in utter confidence,
May find our all in Him.

O take away our fear Lord,
Remove impurity;
Our bent towards this world,
That we may lean on Thee,
O in Your holy presence,
In light sublime reveal;
Your beauty and Your essence,
Before our Lord to kneel.

O send us out Lord Jesus,
From that sweet place of rest;
Anoint and touch Your servants,
That others we may bless,
To speak Your word of healing,
Salvation’s mystery plan;
To every heart appealing,
Make known Your truth to man.

(Tune: Rutherford; Ewing; Day of Rest; 76. 76. D)
