6.4.6.4.


1
O BRIGHT and blessèd hope!
When shall it be
That we His face, long loved,
Revealed shall see?
2
O when, without a cloud,
His features trace,
Whose faithful love so long
We've known in grace;
3
Tha love itself enjoy,
Which, ever true,
Did in our feeble path
Its work pursue?
4
O Jesus! not unknown,
Thy love shall fill
The heart in which Thou dwell'st,
And shalt dwell still.
5
Still, Lord, to see Thy face,
Thy voice to hear;
To know Thy present love,
For ever near;
6
To gaze upon Thyself
So faithful known,
Long proved in secret help
With Thee alone;
7
To see that love, content,
On us flow forth,
For ever Thy delight,
Clothed in Thy worth!
8
Nor what is next Thy heart
Can we forget;
Thy saints, O Lord, with Thee
In glory met.
9
Perfect in comeliness
Before Thy face,
Th' eternal witness, all,
Of Thine own grace;
10
Together then their songs
Of endless praise,
With one harmonious voice,
In joy they'll raise!
