Praying for Christ to be Revealed. 2 Cor. 4. 6

W. Tucker          L.M.

1
Amidst ten thousand anxious cares,
The world and Satan’s deep-laid snares,
This my incessant cry shall be,
Jesus, reveal thyself to me.

2
When Sinai’s awful thunder rolled,
And struck with terror all my soul,
No gleam of comfort could I see,
Till Jesus was revealed to me.

3
When by temptations sore oppressed,
Distressful anguish fills my breast!
All, all is grief and misery,
Till Jesus is revealed to me.

4
When various lusts imperious rise,
And my unguarded soul surprise;
I’m captive led, nor can get free,
Till Christ reveals himself to me.

5
When darkness, thick as beamless night,
Hides the loved Saviour from my sight,
Nothing but this my ardent plea,
Jesus, reveal thyself to me.

6
’Tis he dispels the dismal gloom;
Gives light and gladness in its room;
Then have I joy and liberty
As Christ reveals himself to me.
