7.6.7.6.


1
O JESUS, precious Saviour,
O when wilt Thou return?
Our hearts, with woe familiar,
To Thee our Master turn.
2
Our woe is Thine, Lord Jesus;
Our joy is in Thy love;
But woe and joy all lead us
To Thee in heav'n above.
3
To Thee we look, Lord Jesus,
To Thee whose love we know;
We wait the power that frees us
From bondage, sin and woe.
4
We look for Thine appearing,
Thy presence here to bless;
We greet the day that's nearning,
When all this woe shall cease.
5
But O for us, blest Saviour,
How brighter far the lot,
To be with Thee for ever,
Where evil enters not!
6
To see Thee who hast loved us,
Then face to face above,
Whose grace at first had moved us
To taste and know Thy love!
7
With Thee, O Lord, for ever
Our souls shall be content;
Nor act, nor thought shall ever
Full joy with Thee prevent.
8
Thy Father's perfect favour
Our dwelling place shall be;
And all His glory ever
Shine forth on us through Thee.
9
O come then soon, Lord Jesus,
In patience still we wait -
Await the power that frees us -
Our longed-for heav'nly seat.
