O I Want To See Him
Refrain  [1]  [2]  [3] 
Contemporary
O, I want to see Him,
Look upon His face,
There to sing forever
Of His saving grace;
On the streets of glory
Let me lift my voice;
Cares all past, home at last
Ever to rejoice.
As I journey thro' the land
Singing as I go,
Pointing souls to Calvary,
To the crimson flow,
Many arrows pierce my soul
From without, within;
But my Lord leads me on;
Thro' Him I must win.
When in service for my Lord,
Dark may be the night;
But I'll cling more close to Him;
He will give me light;
Satan's snares may vex my soul,
Turn my tho'ts aside;
But my Lord goes ahead,
Leads whate'er betide.
When before my billows rise
From the mighty deep,
Then my Lord directs my bark;
He doth safely keep,
And He leads me gently on
Thro' this world below;
He's a real Friend to me;
O I love Him so.

As I journey thro' the land singing as I go,
Pointing souls to Calvary, to the crimson flow,
Many arrows pierce my soul from without, within;
But my Lord leads me on; thro' Him I must win.

Refrain
O, I want to see Him, look upon His face,
There to sing forever of His saving grace;
On the streets of glory let me lift my voice;
Cares all past, home at last ever to rejoice.

When in service for my Lord, dark may be the night;
But I'll cling more close to Him; he will give me light;
Satan's snares may vex my soul, turn my tho'ts aside;
But my Lord goes ahead, leads whate'er betide.

When before my billows rise from the mighty deep,
Then my Lord directs my bark; he doth safely keep,
And He leads me gently on thro' this world below;
He's a real Friend to me; O I love Him so.
