        OH bright and blessed hope!
        When shall it be,
        That we His face, long loved,
        Revealed shall see?
        Oh! when, without a cloud,
        His features trace,
        Whose faithful love, so long,
        We've known in grace?


        That love itself enjoy,
        Which, ever true,
        Did, in our feeble path,
        Its work pursue!
        O Jesus! not unknown,
        Thy love shall fill
        The heart in which Thou dwell'st,
        And shalt dwell still!


        Still, Lord, to see Thy face,
        Thy voice to hear;
        To know Thy present love,
        For ever near;
        To gaze upon Thyself
        So faithful known,
        Long proved in secret help
        With Thee alone;


        To see that love, content
        On us flow forth,
        For ever Thy delight,
        Clothed with Thy worth.
        Nor, what is next Thy heart,
        Can we forget;
        Thy saints, O Lord, with Thee
        In glory met.


        Perfect in comeliness
        Before Thy face,
        Th' eternal witness, all,
        Of Thine own grace;
        Together, then, their songs
        Of endless praise,
        With one harmonious voice,
        In joy they'll raise!
