He looks on us, we look on him - Eye to Eye
(Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Eye to Eye.

1. He looks on us, we look on him,
  our eyes with his are meeting;
he greets us with his holy smile,
  and we give back the greeting.

2. He speaks the well-known, 'Come to me,'
  we come without delaying;
he takes our hand, we his, our will
  his gentle touch obeying.

3. He leaneth upon us, and we
  upon his arm are leaning;
he speaks to us, we speak to him,
  no distance intervening.

4. He gives his pledge, he taketh ours:
  no word of his he breaketh;
he keepeth, and will keep us still
  till the bright morn awaketh.

5. He waits for us, we wait for him,
  our home he is preparing;
we in his joy rejoicing, he
  our joy for ever sharing.

Horatius Bonar, Hymns of the Nativity, 1879, 58-59.
