Robert Harkness (1880–1961)


Satisfied my highest longing,
Earthly griefs as naught shall be,
When I wake with Christ in glo­ry,
When His face I see.


When His face I see,
When His face I see,
Oh, the joy for me awaiting,
When His face I see.

Human mind cannot conceive it,
My Re­deem­er’s face so fair;
But I know they need no sunshine,
But His smile up there.


Tho’ ofttimes the way He leadeth,
Is a way of mystery;
There shall be no more of darkness
When His face I see.


Here my tongue can ne­ver utter
All the praise within my heart;
There, in Hea­ven’s song of triumph,
I shall have a part.
