CAC GHB 497: HERE O MY LORD I SEE THEE FACE TO FACE


MAKE MELODY IN YOUR HEART TO THE LORD

Hymn 497:

Here, O my Lord, I see Thee face to

Face;

Here would i touch and handle

Things unseen,

Here grasp with firmer hand the

Eternal grace,

And all my weariness upon Thee lean.

Here would i feed upon the bread of

God,

Here drink with thee the royal wine

Of heav’n,

Here would i lay aside each earthly

Load,

Here taste afresh the calm if sin

Forgiven.

I have no help but thine; nor do i need

Another arm save thee to lean upon;

It is enough, my Lord, enough indeed;


My strength is in thy might, thy might alone.

Mine is the sin, but thine the

Righteousness;

Mine is the guilt, but thine the

Cleansing-blood;

Here is my robe, my refuge, and my

Peace

Thy blood, Thy righteousness, O

Lord, my God.

Too soon we rise; the symbols

Disappear;

The feast, though not the love, is

Passed and gone

The bread and wine remove, but

Thou art there

Nearer than ever still my shield

And sun.

Feast after feast thus comes and

Passes by,

Yet, passing, points to the glad feast

Above, O

Giving sweet foretaste of the festal joy,

The Lamb’s great bridal feast of

Bliss and love.
