Show me Thy face! – one transient gleam

Of loveliness divine,

And I shall never think or dream

Of other love save Thine;

All lesser light will darken quite,

All lower glory wanes;

The beautiful of earth will scare

Seem beautiful again.


Show me Thy face! – my faith and love

Shall henceforth fixed be,

And nothing here have power to move

My soul’s serenity;

My life shall seem a trance, a dream

And all I feel and see,

Illusive visionary  – Thou

The one reality!


Show me Thy face! –  I shall forget

The weary days of yore:

The fretting ghost of vain regret

Shall haunt my soul no more;

All doubts and fears for future years

In quiet rest subside,

And nought but blest content and calm

Within my breast abide.


Show me Thy face! – the heaviest cross

Will then seem light to bear;

There will be gain in every loss,

And peace with every care;

With such light feet the years will fleet,

Life seem as brief as blest,

Till I have laid my burden down,

And entered into rest.


Anon. Stockwell gems
