230 (C.M.) John Cennick

When, O dear Jesus, when shall I

Behold Thee all serene?

Blessed in perpetual Sabbath day,

Without a veil between!

Assist me, while I wander here

Amidst a world of cares;

Incline my heart to pray with love,

And then accept my prayers.

Release my soul from ev'ry chain;

No more hell's captive led;

And pardon a repenting child,

For whom the Saviour bled.

Spare me, my God, oh, spare the soul

That gives itself to Thee,

Take all that I possess below,

And give Thyself to me.

Thy Spirit, O my Father, give,

To be my guide and friend,

To light my pain with endless joys —

A Sabbath without end.
