Abiel A. Livermore (1864–1934)


A ho­ly air is breath­ing round,
A frag­rance from above;
Be ev­ery soul from sense un­bound,
Be ev­ery spir­it love.

O God, unite us heart to heart,
In sym­pa­thy divine,
That we be ne­ver drawn apart,
To love not Thee nor Thine.

But by the cross of Je­sus taught,
And all His gra­cious word,
Be near­er to each oth­er brought,
And near­er Thee, O Lord.
