Words for #318 – Here, O My Lord, I see Thee face to face

Here, O my Lord

Here, O my Lord, I see the face to face
here would I touch and handle things unseen;
here grasp with firmer hand eternal grace,
and all my weariness upon thee lean.

Here would I feed upon the Bread of God;
here drink with thee the royal Wine of heaven;
here would I lay a side each earthily load,
here taste a fresh the calm of sin forgiven.

I have no help but thine; nor do I need
another arm save thine to lean upon;
it is enough, my Lord, enough indeed;
my strength is in they might, thy might a lone.

Mine is the sin, but thine the righteousness;
mine is the guilt, but thine the cleansing Blood.
Here is my robe, my refuge, and my peace;
they Blood, they righteousness, O lord, my God.

words: Horatius Bonar tune: Nyack, Warren Swenson
