Thou lovely Source of true delight Unseen whom I




Thou lovely Source of true delight,
Whom I unseen adore;
Unveil Thy beauties to my sight,
That I may love Thee more.


Thy glory o’er creation shines;
But in Thy sacred Word,
I read in fairer, brighter lines,
My bleeding, dying Lord.


’Tis here, whene’er my comforts droop,
And sins and sorrows rise,
Thy love with cheerful beams of hope,
My fainting heart supplies.


But ah! Too soon the pleasing scene
Is clouded o'er with pain;
My gloomy fears rise dark between,
And I gain complain.


Jesus, my Lord, my Life, my Light,
O come with blissful ray;
Break radiant through the shades of night,
And chase my fears away.


Then shall my soul with rapture trace
The wonders of Thy love;
But the full glories of Thy face
Are only known above.


---Alternative verses---


Thou lovely source of true delight,
Unseen whom I adore
Unveil thy beauties to my sight,
That I may love thee more.


Jesus, my Lord, my Life, my Light,
O come with blissful ray;
Break through the gloomy shades of night,
And chase my fears away.


Jesus, my Lord, my life, my light,
Oh, come with blissful ray;
Break, radiant through the shades of night,
And drive my fears away.


Then shall my soul with rapture trace
The wonders of Thy love;
Then shall I see thy glorious face
In endless joy above.
