Satisfying Sight

"Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of Thy name: and deliver us, and purge away our sins, for Thy name's sake" (Psalm 79:9).  "The eye is not satisfied with seeing" (Ecclesiastes 1:8).  "The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the Only Begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth… Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world… Ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man" (John 1:14,29,51). 

The God of our salvation came
To purge away our sins as dross. 
We magnify His holy name
And glory in our Savior's cross!  

As we behold the great I AM,
The Word Incarnate, Jesus Christ,
We see His glory as the Lamb
Who for our sake was sacrificed! 

Our sight could not be satisfied
With all the boasted works of men. 
Behold the Son of God who died,
Who rose, and who will come again! 

O Lord, this satisfying sight
Of grace and truth in You so full,
Which opens heaven, gives delight
That satisfies the longing soul!
