CHRIST SUPREMELY DESIRED




Jesus, thy face I long to see,
That lovely face once marred for me;
In which with lustre all divine,
A thousand peerless beauties shine.


The transient visits of thy grace,
Make earth itself a pleasant place;
And heaven would be no heaven to me,
If I were parted, Lord, from thee.


To thee my fainting spirit flies,
To thee my warm affections rise;
For thee alone I sigh and mourn,
And anxious wait thy kind return.


One smile of thine my heart can cheer,
Prisons delight, if thou art there;
In thine embrace Iíll yield my breath,
And triumph in the pangs of death.
