1. Father, I long, I faint to see
The place of Thine abode;
I’d leave these earthly courts, and flee
Up to Thy courts, my God.
Here I behold Thy distant face,
And ’tis a pleasing sight,
But to abide in Thine embrace
Is infinite delight.
2. I’d part with all the joys of sense
To gaze upon Thy throne;
Pleasure springs fresh for ever thence,
There all the heavenly hosts are seen,
In shining ranks they move,
And drink immortal vigour in,
With wonder and with love.
