(Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

I would see Jesus.

1. I would see Jesus now, when life is bright,

2. Earth's sun is bright, but not so bright as he;
  earth's flowers are sweet, but he is sweeter far.

3. I would see Jesus in the day of gloom,
  when comfort from the feeble lips of men
is all in vain; when by the open tomb
  I stand, and ask with pleading voice, “Oh, when
  shall it unclose and give me back my own again?”

Horatius Bonar, "Until the Day break", 1890, 51-52.
