The Two of Us
We knelt before the "Throne of Grace"
The two of us.
But when we rose - our hearts indwelt by Thee
We two walking with Thee
Had become three.
Like the disciples of old on the Emmaus road
You walked beside -
Your gracious will to unfold.
Day and night you led the way
Thro hills and dales and into sandy bays.
Then one day when descending from a mountain high
We came upon a pool -
Where crystal water mirrored the deep blue sky.
Pausing we drank - to quench our thirst -
Then in humbleness we prayed -
Lord not only our thirst -
But let our whole bodies by immersed.
Take our wills - our love - our lives
And drown them - as aa living sacrifice.
Oh Happy Day - what joy we shared
As day by day for us you cared.
Long years have passed and many a trial -
And one has already been drawn
Thro the Holy veil.
Sweet Jesus keep me strong and true
'til my loved one I see - when you call me to you.
'til then we still are three -
'Cos you've got one arm around Steve
And one around me.
