SEEKING THE LORD




‘Seek ye my face,’ Jehovah said,
And straight my heart replied,
Thy face, oh God, I’ll humbly seek;
What can I seek beside?


Nor sun nor moon, nor midnight stars,
With half such glory shine;
There majesty and mercy form
A lustre all divine.


To see that blessed and glorious face,
Creates a heaven below;
And if of angels we enquire,
‘Tis all the heaven they know.


Of this vain world with its delights,
Could I possess the whole,
One glimpse, one single glimpse of thee,
Would more content my soul.
