Lovest Thou Me?
Jesus, I see Thee led to Calvary,
There to endure, in
An awful loneliness; that I might be
Set free from
sin—'Yes, Lord, I love Thee.'
Saviour, I see Thee silent in the tomb;
Thy followers despairing in the gloom;
The door is closed. That stone has
sealed my doom.
It was my death—'Yes, Lord, I love Thee.'
My Lord, I
see Thee rising from the dead,
And through the earth Thy radiant light is
In darkest places. Death holds no more dread.
This, this is
life—'Yes, Lord. I love Thee.'
Someday, my Lord, I'll see Thee come again
With angel hosts, o'er all the earth to reign;
I'll see an end to sin, and
grief, and pain,
In that great day—'Yes, Lord, I love Thee.'
THE GOD OF ALL GRACE and Me
