O FOR A VISION OF JESUS




Oh, for a vision of Jesus!
Oh, for a glimpse of his face,
Radiant with heavenly glory,
Beaming with heavenly grace!
Not here to mortals 'tis given,
Veil-less his beauty to see,
Yet in the soul's contemplation,
Show thyself, Saviour, to me.

Oh, for a vision of Jesus!
Oh, for a glimpse of his face,
Radiant with heavenly glory,
Beaming with heavenly grace!


Oh, for a vision of Jesus!
Seen in the wonderful Book!
As in a clear, shining mirror,
In those dear pages I look.
There, Lamb of God, is thy likeness,
There glows thy image divine;
So let me gaze till thy Spirit,
Lord, is reflected in mine.

Oh, for a vision of Jesus!
Oh, for a glimpse of his face,
Radiant with heavenly glory,
Beaming with heavenly grace!


Oh, for a vision of Jesus!
When roll the billows of grief!
Over the waters of sorrow,
Saviour, thy smile brings relief.
One look-the tempest is passing;
One word-the waves are at rest;
Sweet peace, beyond understanding,
Jesus is there "manifest."

Oh, for a vision of Jesus!
Oh, for a glimpse of his face,
Radiant with heavenly glory,
Beaming with heavenly grace!


Oh, for a vision of Jesus
When nears the cold Jordan-tide!
Making a pathway of glory,
E'en to the bright "other side."
There, in ineffable splendor,
Manifest, Lord, to our gaze.
More than the angels, we'll love thee.
More than the seraphim, praise.

Oh, for a vision of Jesus!
Oh, for a glimpse of his face,
Radiant with heavenly glory,
Beaming with heavenly grace!
