Friend unseen, we love thee

Representative Text

1. Tho’ unseen, yet still we love Thee,
Friend and Guide o’er life’s dark sea;
Thou art dearer than a brother
To our hearts can ever be. [CHORUS]

Friend unseen, yet still we love Thee;
O the joy Thy promise brings!
We shall rest beneath the shadow
Of Thine own almighty wings.

2. When before Thy throne we gather,
Burdened oft with anxious care,
Sweetly comes the blest assurance,
Thou wilt hear and answer prayer. [CHORUS]

3. Friend unseen, we shall behold Thee
When our fleeting years depart;
Crowned with light and robed in glory,
We shall see Thee as Thou art. [CHORUS]
