Hymn/Song Information

When on devotion's seraph wing The




When, on devotionís seraph wing,
The spirit soars above,
And feels Thy presence, Father, Friend,
God of eternal love!
The joys of earth, how swift they fade
Before that living ray,
Which gives to the rapt soul a glimpse
Of pure and perfect day!


A gleam of Heavenís own light, though now
Its brightness scarce appears
Through the pale shadows that are spread
Around our earthly years:
But Thine unclouded smile, O God!
Fills that all-glorious place,
Where we shall know as we are known,
And see Thee, face to face.
