Full Text

1 If I in Thy likeness, O Lord may awake,
And shine a pure image of Thee;
Then I shall be satisfied when I can break
The fetters of flesh and be free.

I shall be satisfied;
I shall be satisfied
I shall be satisfied;
When I awake in Thy likeness.

2 I know this stained tablet must first be washed white
And there Thy bright features be drawn;
I know I must suffer the darkness of night
To welcome the coming of dawn. [Refrain]

3 And O the blest morning already is here,
The shadows of earth soon shall fade;
And soon in Thy likeness I'll with Thee appear,
In glory and beauty array’d. [Refrain]

4 When on thine own image in me Thou hast smiled,
Within Thy blest mansion, and when
The arms of my Father encircle His child,
O! I shall be satisfied then. [Refrain]
