O Lord, How Shall I Meet You

  1. O Lord, how shall I meet you,
    how welcome you aright?
    Your people long to greet you,
    my hope, my heart’s delight!
    O kindle, Lord Most Holy,
    your lamp within my breast
    to do in spirit lowly
    all that may please you best.
  2. Love caused your incarnation,
    love brought you down to me;
    your thirst for my salvation
    procured my liberty.
    O love beyond all telling,
    that led you to embrace,
    in love all love excelling,
    our lost and fallen race!
  3. Rejoice, then, you sad-hearted,
    who sit in deepest gloom,
    who mourn o’er joys departed
    and tremble at your doom.
    Despair not, he is near you,
    yea, standing at the door,
    who best can help and cheer you
    and bids you weep no more.
  4. Sin’s debt, that fearful burden,
    let not your souls distress;
    your guilt the Lord will pardon
    and cover by his grace.
    He comes, for men procuring
    the peace of sin forgiv’n,
    for all God’s sons securing
    their heritage in heav’n.
  5. You come, O Lord, with gladness,
    in mercy and goodwill,
    to bring an end to sadness
    and bid our fears be still.
    In patient expectation
    we live for that great day
    when a renewed creation
    your glory shall display.
