Lord, who shall sit beside theeAuthor: William Romanis (1878)
Tune: CHRISTUS, DER IST MEIN LEBEN
Published in 4 hymnals
1 Lord, who shall sit beside thee,
Enthroned on either hand,
When clouds no longer hide thee
'Mid all thy faithful band?
2 Who drinks the cup of sorrow
Thy Father gave to thee
'Neath shadows of the morrow
In dark Gethsemane;
3 Who on thy Passion thinking
Can find in loss a gain,
And dare to meet unshrinking
Thy baptism of pain.
4 O Jesu, form within us
Thy likeness clear and true;
By thine example win us
To suffer and to do.
5 This law itself fulfilleth,--
Christlike to Christ is nigh,
And, where the Father willeth,
Shall sit with Christ on high.
