“Whom having not seen, ye love.” 1 Pet. 1. 8

I. Watts             S.M.

1
Not with our mortal eyes
Have we beheld the Lord;
Yet we rejoice to hear his name,
And love him in his word.

2
On earth we want the sight
Of our Redeemer’s face;
Yet, Lord, our inmost thoughts delight
To dwell upon thy grace.

3
And when we taste thy love,
Our joys divinely grow
Unspeakable, like those above,
And heaven begins below.
