8593. When Shall I See The Day?

1 When shall I see the day that ends my woes?
When shall I victory gain over all my foes?
When shall the trumpet sound that calls the exile home?
The grand Sabbatic year, when will it come?

2 A crown of glory bright by faith I see,
In yonder realms of light, prepared for me;
O, may I faithful prove, and keep the prize in view,
And thro’ the storms of life my way pursue.

3 Jesus, be Thou my guide, my steps attend;
O, keep me near Thy side; be Thou my friend;
Be Thou my shield and sun, my Savior and my guard,
And, when my work is done, my great reward.

4 O, how I long to see that happy day,
When sorrow, sin, and pain shall flee away;
When all the heav’nly tribes shall find their long sought home—
The Jubilee of Heav’n, when will it come?
