O I Want To See Him (Hymn)

O I Want to See Him
R.H. Cornelius (1916)

As I journey through 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, through 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,
Care 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 thoughts aside;
But my Lord goes ahead, leads whate’er betide.

Refrain

When in valleys low, I look toward the mountain height,
And behold my Savior there, leading in the fight,
With a tender hand outstretched toward the valley low,
Guiding me, I can see, as I onward go.

Refrain

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

Refrain

This song should be a perfect expression of our love for the Lord.  It describes our lives and how He loves us, helps us and comforts us all through our journey here on Earth.  The question for today is this: how badly do we really want to see Him?
