Horatius Bonar (1808-1889).

Thomas C. Neal, in Jasper and Gold, edited by Tullius C. O’Kane (Cincinnati, Ohio: Hitchcock & Walden, 1877), number 68 (🔊 pdf nwc).

When I shall wake in that fair morn of morns,
After whose dawning never night returns,
And with whose glory day eternal burns,
I shall be satisfied.

Refrain

I shall be satisfied,
I shall be satisfied
I shall be satisfied,
By and by.

When I shall see Thy glory face to face,
When in Thine arms Thou wilt Thy child embrace,
When Thou shalt open all Thy stores of grace,
I shall be satisfied.

Refrain

When I shall meet with those that I have loved,
Clasp in my eager arms the long removed,
And find how faithful Thou to me hast proved,
I shall be satisfied.

Refrain

When I shall gaze upon the face of Him
Who for me died, with eye no longer dim,
And praise Him with the everlasting hymn,
I shall be satisfied.

Refrain
