I Shall Be Satisfied

Representative Text

1 When I shall awake in that fair morn of morns,
After whose dawning never night returns,
And with whose bright glory day eternal burns,
I shall be satisfied then.

I shall be satisfied then,
I shall be satisfied then,
When I shall awake in that fair morn of morns,
I shall be satisfied then.

2 And when I shall see his glory face to face,
Hear his glad welcome, feel his fond embrace,
And feast on the fullness of his heav’nly grace,
I shall be satisfied then. [Refrain]

3 And when I shall meet the friends that I have loved,
Clasp to my bosom dear ones long removed,
And witness how faithful Christ to me hath proved,
I shall be satisfied then. [Refrain]

4 Oh, soon I shall gaze upon the face of him,
Pierced to redeem me from the curse of sin,
And praise him forever with the glad new hymn;
I shall be satisfied then. [Refrain]

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 >
