WHEN, O when shall I have the favor
To see th'approach of those blest days,
When I shall welcome dear Saviour
With solemn strains, with joyful lays?
How blest will then be
When in my flesh I Christ shall see!
Tho' happy in his love's fruition
Ev'n here, I long with him to be.
2 What heav'nly joy and consolation
This hope affords unto my heart,
That Christ, the God of my salvation,
Will me receive, when I depart!
Then in his presence I for ever,
With the redeem'd shall sing his praise;
O Lord, I long to have that favor,
To leave this world and see thy face.
987.* T. 83.
WHEN departed once in peace,
I shall have the grace and favor
To behold him face to face,
Whom I love, ev'n God
Then I shall for evermore
Him in endless joy adore.
2 When I once shall favor'd be,
To enjoy in fullest measure,
What his suff'rings gain'd for me,
And salvation's blood-bought treasure,
With what rapture shall I sing
Hallelujah to my King!
O what joy awaiteth me!
I rejoice in expectation,
That in my flesh shall see
Him, the God of my salvation,
And behold the Lord in endless bliss,
As he is. :||:
2 Yea, Amen! :||:
Pardon'd sinners here rejoice
In this hope and consolation,
Till we shall with sweeter voice,
Sing in the great Congregation, [God
Thou, O Lamb, hast brought us nigh to
By thy blood! :||:
MY lot of grace-will be always
Beyond description blessed;
Yea, the bliss I shall enjoy
Cannot be expressed.
Him I shall see-whose love to me
My heart hath captivated;
From his presence I no more
Shall be separated.
990.* T. 208.
WHAT hast thou, Lord Jesus,
To redeem and bless us,
For us undergone!
But there will be shortly
Here we know but partly,
More of this depth known;
When above-we shall remove,
And shall live with thee for ever,
Our beloved Saviour.
2 I am lost in wonder,
When I duly ponder,
Jesus, on thy grace;
That I shall in glory
Evermore adore thee;
And that, face to face,
I shall see-eternally
Thee, the God of my salvation,
O what consolation!
991. T. 14.
COME, Lord, and warm each languid
Inspire each lifeless tongue; [heart,
And let the joys of heav'n impart
Their influence to our song.
2 Sorrow and pain, and ev'ry care,
And discord there shall cease;
And perfect joy, and love sincere,
Adorn the realms of peace.
3 The soul, from sin for ever free,
But, cloth'd in spotless purity,
Shall mourn its pow'r no more;
Redeeming love adore.
992. T. 14.
HAPPY the souls to Jesus join'd,
And sav'd by grace alone;
Walking in all his ways, they find
Their heav'n on earth begun.
2 The church above no other theme
But Jesus' love doth know;
In joyful hymns they praise his name,
We do the same below.
Our Lord, with matchless grace,
Will to his glory's praise,
'Midst joys unutterable,
Us as his own confess.
What joy and happiness
Shall we above possess,
When we adore him,
With angels bow before him,
And see his face-what happiness!
999.* T. 159.
Now, Lord, who in this vale of tears
Dost lift thy gracious face,
Upon thy church which thee reveres,
And givest us such peace,
That sweetly we anticipate
The heav'nly bliss, for which we wait,
In thee rejoicing here below,
Ev'n while in tears we sow:
2 O form us all, while we remain
On earth, unto thy praise !
That each one fully may obtain
Thy blessed aim, thro' grace:
Till we in heav'n thy face shall see,
May spirit, soul and body be
Preserv'd by thee, till thy great day,
Blameless, O Lord, we pray.
