Child of God Must Walk Alone

The child of God must walk alone
If he would live and walk with thee;
And only to such hearts are known
The joys of thy blest company.
Alone with thee, Ο Master!
where The light of earthly glory dies;
Misunderstood by ail, I dare
To do what thine own heart will prize.
Such be my path through life down here-
One long, close, lonely walk with thee;
Until, past every doubt and fear,
Thy face in light above I see.
