Hymn/Song Information

In hope we lift our wishful longing eyes




In hope we lift
our wishful, longing eyes,
Waiting to see
the Morning Star arise;
How bright, how gladsome
will His advent be,
Before the Sun shines
forth in majesty!


How will our eyes
to see His face delight,
Whose love has cheered
us through the darksome night!
How will our ears drink in
His well-known voice,
Whose faintest whispers
make our soul rejoice!


No strain within;
no foes or snares around;
No jarring notes
shall there discordant sound;
All pure without,
all pure within the breast;
No thorns to wound,
no toil to mar our rest.


If here on earth
the thoughts of Jesus' love
Lift our poor hearts
this weary world above;
If even here the taste
of heavenly springs
So cheers the spirit,
that the pilgrim sings:


What will the sunshine
of His glory prove!
What the unmingled
fulness of His love!
What hallelujahs
will His presence raise!
What but one loud,
eternal burst of praise!
