Representative Text

1 When I awake in the sweet morn of morns,
After whose dawning night ne'er returns;
And with whose glory the day ever burns,
I shall be satisfied.

I shall be satisfied;
I shall be satisfied;
When in the likeness of God I'm arrayed,
I shall be satisfied.

2 When I shall meet with the ones I have lov'd,
Clasp in my arms the long, long remov'd,
And find how faithful the Lord then has proved,
I shall be satisfied. [Chorus]

3 When I shall gaze on the dear face of Him,
Who died for me, with eye no more dim,
And praise Him ever with heaven's swelling hymn,
I shall be satisfied. [Chorus]

Author: Horatius Bonar

Horatius Bonar was born at Edinburgh, in 1808. His education was obtained at the High School, and the University of his native city. He was ordained to the ministry, in 1837, and since then has been pastor at Kelso. In 1843, he joined the Free Church of Scotland. His reputation as a religious writer was first gained on the publication of the "Kelso Tracts," of which he was the author. He has also written many other prose works, some of which have had a very large circulation. Nor is he less favorably known as a religious poet and hymn-writer. The three series of "Hymns of Faith and Hope," have passed through several editions. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872… Go to person page >
