Here, O My Lord

from Ekklesia Hymns: Vol​.​1 by Matt Foreman



Music by Matt Foreman; Words by Horatius Bonar (1855)

1. Here, O my Lord, I see Thee face to face;
Here would I touch and handle things unseen;
Here grasp with firmer hand eternal grace,
And all my weariness upon Thee lean.

Hallelujah! Come, Lord Jesus, Come!
Take me to the eternal home!

2. This is the hour of banquet and of song;
This is the heavenly table spread for me;
Here let me feast, and feasting, still prolong
The hallowed hour of fellowship with Thee.

3. Here would I feed upon the bread of God,
Here drink with Thee the royal wine of Heaven;
Here would I lay aside each earthly load,
Here taste afresh the calm of sin forgiven.

Hallelujah! Come, Lord Jesus, Come!
Take me to the eternal home!

4. Mine is the sin, but Thine the righteousness:
Mine is the guilt, but Thine the cleansing blood;
Here is my robe, my refuge, and my peace;
Thy Blood, Thy righteousness, O Lord my God!

Hallelujah! Come, Lord Jesus, Come!
Take me to the eternal home!
