1 Eye hath not seen Thy glory: Thou alone
The path of light hast trod;
And in Thy kingdom, on the Father’s throne
Thou reignest, Son of God.

2 Yet Thou abidest with us, King of kings:
Thy loveliness we see;
And through the hallowed veil of earthly things
Hold communing with Thee.

3 Thou livest in us: from the tomb of earth
To heaven with Thee we rise,
And, through the portal of our second birth,
Behold the eternal prize.

4 The door in heaven is opened: Jesus, Lord,
The Crown is on Thy brow;
Amid the immortal hosts of light adored
In glory dwellest Thou.
