176: LORD, we shall see Thee as Thou artby Anonymous
1 LORD, we shall see Thee as Thou art,
In all Thy glory there,
We shall behold Thee face to face,
Thy glorious image bear.
2 With what delight, what wondering love,
Each thrilling heart shall swell,
When we, as sharers of Thy joy,
Are called with Thee to dwell!
3 For ever our still wondering eyes
Shall o'er His beauties rove;
To endless ages we'll adore
The riches of His love!
4 O hasten, hasten on that hour,
And call us to Thy seat:
For Thou without us ne'er wilt count
Thy work, Thy joy complete.
