1 When shall I look on that wonderful face,
Fair in its feature and pure in its grace?
When shall I draw from his visage divine
Pictures of sweetness, till they shall be mine?
O, I shall see him, the fairest of fair!
Bearing his image, his beauty I’ll share.
2 When shall I kneel at those dear wounded feet,
Giving all glory to whom it is mete?
When shall those hands which were nailed to the tree,
Raising me up, show a blessing for me? [Refrain]
3 When shall I gaze in those wonderful eyes,
Reading his love with the sweetest surprise?
When shall that test of approval be mine,—
Robed for the bridal, the marriage divine? [Refrain]Source: Melodious Sonnets #25
