O, I Want To See Him

Cat. #0843 (MFH #486) - As sung by Ollie Gilbert, Mountain View, Arkansas on August 27, 1969

As I journey thru th land
Singing as I go
Parting souls to calvary
To th criminshon flow
Many hour I pierced my soul
From without, witihin
But my Lord, leads me on
Thru 'im I must win

O, I wan'na see Him
Look upon His face
There to sing forever
Of His sav'in grace
On th streets of glory
Let me lift my voice
Cares all past, home at last
Ever to rejoice

When in sevice for my Lord
Dark may be th night
But I cling more close to Him
He will give me light
Satan snares me, vex my soul
Turn my thought aside
But my Lord goes ahead
An' leads what 'er betides

In th valley, low I looked
T'wards th mountain high
An' behold my Saviour there
Lead'in in th fight
With a tender hand that stretched
T'wards th valley low
Guided me, I can see
As I onward go

When before me billow rise
From th mighty deep
An' my Lord dewreck my bark
He will safely keep
An' He lead me gentli on
Thru this world below
He's a real friend to me
O, I love 'im so
