1 Have you seen the Saviour’s face
In temptation’s trying hour;
Have you proved that He can save
From the cruel tempter’s pow’r?

Refrain:
Yes, I’ve seen His blessed face,
In His heart I have a place;
I have proved His love divine,
Heard Him say “Child thou art mine.”

2 Have you seen the Saviour’s face,
When your heat was torn with grief;
Did His look of pitying love
Fill your soul with sweet relief? [Refrain]

3 Have you seen the Saviour’s face,
When your soul was fill’d with joy?
Then you know that vision fair
Naught but sin can e’er destroy. [Refrain]
