Tune 2: #113, #326 (Tune 1), #617


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.
