#191: Here, O My Lord, I See Thee Face to Face

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Here, O my Lord, I see Thee face to face,

Here would I touch and handle things unseen,

Here grasp with firmer hand eternal grace,

And all my weariness upon Thee lean.

2

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 clam of sin forgiv’n.

3

I have no help but Thine, nor do I need

Another arm save Thine to lean upon;

It is enough, my Lord, enough indeed —

My strength is in Thy might,

Thy might alone.

4

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.
