67 ~ O Lord Now Let Your Servant


O Lord, now let Your servant Depart in heav'nly peace, For I have seen the glory Of Your redeeming grace: A light to lead the Gentiles Unto Your holy hill, The glory of Your people, Your chosen Israel.


Then grant that I may follow Your gleam, O glorious Light, Till earthly shadows scatter, And faith is changed to sight; Till raptured saints shall gather Upon that shining shore, Where Christ, the blessed Daystar, Shall light them evermore.
