5389. O That I Could, in Every Place

1. O that I could, in every place,
By faith behold Jehovah’s face;
My strict observer see
Present, my heart and reins to try
And feel the influence of His eye
For ever fixed on me!

2. Discerning Thee, my Savior, stand
My advocate at God’s right hand,
I never shall remove;
I cannot fall, upheld by Thee,
Or sin against the majesty
Of omnipresent Love.

3. Now, Savior, now appear, appear,
And let me always see Thee near,
And know as I am known:
My spirit to Thyself unite,
And bear me through a sea of light
To that eternal throne.
