Representative Text

1 O I cannot take it in,
With my weak and trembling mind,
All the riches, all the glory, of my Lord;
How He saves me from my sin,
And my heart to Him doth bind;
I can only rest upon His holy word.

Refrain:
But O I shall be satisfied,
I shall be satisfied,
I shall be satisfied;
When I awake in His likeness,
I shall be satisfied.

2 In His presence we shall dwell,
And behold Him face to face,
In His precious love rejoice forevermore;
All the wondrous story tell,
How He saved us by His grace,
How He brought us safe to Canaan’s happy shore. [Refrain]

3 Soon the welcome day will dawn,
Soon the faith will change to sight,
Soon the gloomy shades of night will pass away;
Then we’ll hail the glorious morn,
And, in heaven’s unclouded light,
We shall live and praise His name through endless day. [Refrain]
