Lyrics

When this passing world is done,
when has sunk the radiant sun,
when I stand with Christ on high,
seeing all life’s history,
then, Lord, shall I fully know,
not till then, how much I owe.

When I stand before the throne,
dressed in beauty not my own,
when your fulness, Lord, I see,
when my heart from sin is free,
then, Lord, shall I fully know,
not till then, how much I owe.

When the praise of Heaven I hear,
loud as thunders to the ear,
loud as many waters’ noise,
sweet as harp’s melodious voice,
then, Lord, shall I fully know,
not till then, how much I owe.

Chosen, not for good in me,
called by grace from wrath to flee,
hidden in the Saviour’s side,
by the Spirit sanctified,
teach me, Lord, on earth to show
by my love how much I owe.
