O Love, revealed on earth in Christ,
In blindness once I sacrificed
Thy gifts for dross; I could not see,
But Jesus brings me sight of Thee.
I come to Thee with quiet mind,
Thyself to know, Thy will to find;
In Jesus’ steps my steps must be,
I follow Him to follow Thee.
O Love, invisible before,
I see Thee now, desire Thee more;
When Jesus speaks Thy word is clear;
I search His face and find Thee near.
O Love, forever claim my eyes!
Thy beauty be my chosen prize;
I cast my load on timeless grace
That my free soul may run the race.
