1 By Grace we know, to us it's clear,
When Christ, our Saviour, shall appear,
We shall be like him, O what Bliss!
For we shall see him as he is.
2 When as he is we him descry,
In Spirit's Light and Mystery;
Unnumber'd Beauties in him shine,
Beauties of God and Man divine:
3 Beauties of Holiness and Grace,
Adorn our Saviour's lovely Face;
Eternal Truth and Righteousness
Doth he in Purity posess.
4 When as he is we him do see,
From evy'r Spot and Wrinkle free:
How glorious is the worthy Lamb!
How venerable is his Name!
5 But, O what glorious Grace is this!
That when we see him as he is,
We see ourselves, and are assur'd
That we are like our dearest Lord.
6 As we his mystic Fulness are,
He gives us each a Member's Share
In all his Grace: The favour'd Bride
Is with his Likeness satisfy'd.
7 Jesus, enough, we're as thou art!
With this great Truth we ne'er will part;
Each Member here is as the Head,
Each as its Lord is perfected.
8 But yet, as Crystals pure transmit
Their Lustre whence they borrow it:
From thee, O Christ, we all receive;
To thee we all the Glory give.
9 What yet shall gloriously advance
Our Joys, is thy Pre-eminence;
'Tis Heav'n to see thee wear the Crown,
And prostrate at thy Feet fall down.
