8.8.6.8.8.6.


1
O LORD, what joy and glad surprise
Shall fill our hearts when we arise
To meet Thee in the air!
To see Thy face, to hear Thy voice,
And in Thy perfect love rejoice,
Whose glory we shall share.
2
No more deferred our hope shall be,
No longer through a glass we'll see,
But clearly, face to face.
Then shall we dwell with Thee above,
Whom absent we have learned to love -
Blest trophies of Thy grace.
3
While waiting for Thee, Saviour, here,
O may Thy word our spirits cheer -
I quickly come again!
O may our hearts expect that day,
And to Thy word responsive say:
Come, Jesus, Lord, Amen!

G.W. Fraser
