"I Shall Be Satisfied "

Thou'st shown me, Lord, my sinful heart--
My weakness, and my wilful ways,
I owe to Thee
Eternal praise for this, indeed;
But still, I have not seen Thy face.
When shall it be?

Thou'st shown me all Thy heart of love;
Thy pity and surpassing grace
Are sweet to me.
For this I truly thank Thee, Lord;
But oh, I have not seen Thy face.
When shall it be?

Thou hast taught me that by simple faith
In what on Calvary took place--
Thy death for me--
That I am safe forever more;
But, Lord, I want to see Thy face.
When shall it be?

Thou hast shed Thy glory on Thy Word,
And filled the intervening space
Till Thou shalt come,
With light, and joy and blessed hope;
But how I long to see Thy face
In that bright home!

Thou has taught me, Lord, to lean on Thee Alone,
While I run the race and wait for Thee.
And Thou has been alone my strength;
But when shall I behold Thy face--
When shall it be?

Thou hast given me all my heart's desire,
Filled all my longing by Thy grace
Most graciously.
Thy cross makes earth's vain pleasures naught,
And makes me long to see Thy face
Most earnestly.

Thou hast placed on me Thy blessed name,
And in my heart hast found Thy place--
How could I ask for more? And yet
I do: It is to see Thy face.
Once marred for me.

Mine eyes are held, I see Thee not
For yet a very little space,
Then I shall see...
Faith saith, "I know"
Love "faileth not"
And Hope saith, "I shall see Thy face,"
And dwell with Thee.

And the longing of my heart
Shall be fulfilled when I shall see Thy face.

I shall be satisfied.

H. McD.  year 1916

A Little Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:

1Corinthians 13:12-13 
For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I
know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. And now
abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

We long to see our Lord Jesus-- face to face! In this world,
we but through a dark glass but someday we shall see our
Savior face to face and shall behold the beauty that is His alone!

Lord and Savior,
