C.M.

Jesus, of Thee we ne'er would tire;
 
The new and living food
 
Can satisfy our heart's desire,
 
And life is in Thy blood.
John 6:51; Psalm 107:9; Leviticus 17:11; John 6:53-56
2
If such the happy midnight song
 
Our prisoned spirits raise,
 
What are the joys that cause, ere long,
 
Eternal bursts of praise?
Job 35:10; Psalm 42:8; Romans 8:23; 2 Corinthians 5:2-4
3
To look within and see no stain,
 
Abroad no curse to trace;
 
To shed no tears, to feel no pain,
 
But see Thee face to face.
Ephesians 5:27; Revelation 22:3; Revelation 21:4; Revelation 22:4
4
To find each hope of glory gained,
 
Fulfilled each precious word;
 
And fully all to have attained
 
The image of our Lord.
Romans 5:2; Revelation 21:11; Luke 21:32-33; Revelation 17:17; 1 Corinthians 15:49; 2 Corinthians 3:18
5
For this we're pressing onward still,
 
And in this hope would be
 
More subject to the Father's will,
 
E'en now much more like Thee.
