J N Darby – Expectation – Lord Jesus! source of every grace

J N Darby
John Nelson Darby


1 LORD Jesus! source of every grace,
Glorious in light divine,
Soon shall we see Thee face to face,
And in that glory shine,

2 Be ever with Thee, hear Thy voice,
Unhindered then shall taste
The love which doth our hearts rejoice,
Though absent in this waste.

3 In peaceful wonder we adore
The thoughts of love divine,
Which in that world, for evermore,
Unite our lot with Thine.

by John Nelson Darby (1800-1882)

sung to Orlington by J. Campbell (1807-1860)
