1 We would see Jesus, when the day is dying
In golden glory ere the night comes on;
We would see Jesus, giving songs for sighing,
In His dear presence earthly cares are gone.

We would see Jesus, Jesus, only Jesus!
His loving smile doth fainting hearts revive;
His gentle word from doubt and discord frees us,
His mighty pow’r dead souls can make alive.

2 We would see Jesus, darkness overtakes us,
The way is hard and doubt obscures our sky;
But still we hear, when every friend forsakes us;
“Lo, I am with you, ever, ever nigh.” [Refrain]

3 We would see Jesus, life is fair but fleeting,
And disappointment shares it choicest charm;
Our souls look upward to that heav’nly meeting
With Jesus, ever safe from sin and harm. [Refrain]

4 We would see Jesus, in our work victorious!
Through His right arm our feeble faith is strong;
Inspired by Him we reap the harvest glorious;
Filled with His spirit raise the triumph song. [Refrain]
