11899. 'Tis Now In Part

1 ’Tis now in part I know the Lord,
I see Him in His written word,
I see Him mirrored in His grace:
But oh! to see Him face to face.

Refrain:
Then I shall know as I am known,
And glory give to Him alone;
Then I shall know as I am known,
And glory give to Him alone.

2 ’Tis now in part I know His love,
Which brought Him from the realms above;
But, oh! to reach that blissful sphere,
And from His lips the story hear. [Refrain]

3 ’Tis now in part I know His hand,
Which leads me thro’ this desert land;
But oh! to stand before His throne,
With every darkening shadow flown. [Refrain]

4 ’Tis now in part I know His joy,
My strength when anxious fears annoy;
But oh! to see Him as He is,
My raptured heart pressed close to His. [Refrain]
