PRAYER AND ASPIRATION
496
2  We would see Jesus, the great rock foundation,
Whereon our feet were set with sovereign grace; Not life, nor death, with all their agitation, Can thence remove us if we see His face.
3  We would see Jesus; yet the spirit lingers
Round the dear objects it has loved so long, And earth from earth can scarce unclasp its fingers; Our love to Thee makes not this love less strong.
4  We would see Jesus: sense is all too binding,
And heaven appears too' dim, too far away; We would see Thee, Thyself our hearts reminding What Thou hast suffered, our great debt to pay.
5  We would see Jesus: this is all we're needing;
Strength, joy, and willingness come with the sight; We would see Jesus, dying, risen, pleading; Then welcome day, and farewell mortal night.
Elien S. Elus, i
