LORD Jesus Christ, we seek Thy face;

Within the veil we bow the knee,

Oh, let Thy glory fill the place,

And bless us while we wait on Thee.


We thank Thee for the precious blood

That purged our sins and brought us nigh,

All cleansed and sanctified to God,

Thy holy Name to magnify.


Shut in with Thee far, far above

The restless world that wars below,

We seek to learn and prove Thy love,

Thy wisdom and Thy grace to know.


The brow that once with thorns was bound,

Thy hands, Thy side, we fain would see,

Draw near, Lord Jesus, glory-crowned,

And bless us while we wait on Thee.
