Show me Thy face




Show me Thy faceó
One transient gleam
Of loveliness Divine,
And I shall never think or dream
Of other love save Thine:
All lesser light will darken quite,
All lower glories wane,
The beautiful of earth will scarce
Seem beautiful again.


Show me Thy faceó
my faith and love
Shall henceforth fixed be,
And nothing here
have power to move
My soulís serenity.
My life shall seem a trance, a dream,
And all I feel and see,
Illusive, visionaryó
Thou one reality!


Show me Thy faceó
I shall forget
The weary days of yore,
The fretting ghosts of vain regret
Shall haunt my soul no more.
All doubts and fears for future years
In quiet rest subside,
And naught but blest
content and calm
Within my breast reside.


Show me Thy faceó
the heaviest cross
Will then seem light to bear;
There will be gain in every loss,
And peace with every care.
With such light feet
for the years will fleet,
Life seem as brief as blest,
Till I have laid my burden down,
And entered into rest.
