O glad the wilderness for me - The blessed country
(Frances Bevan/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

The blessed country.

"The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose." (Isaiah 35,1)

1. O glad the wilderness for me,
  and glad the solitary place,
since thou hast made mine eyes to see,
  to see thy Face. (PDF - Midi)

2. Not heavenly fields, but desert sands
  rejoice and blossom as the rose;
for through the dry and thirsty lands
  thy River flows.

3. O Way beside that living tide,
  the Way, the Truth, the Life art thou;
I drink, and I am satisfied,
  now, even now.

4. Eternal joy already won,
  eternal songs already given;
for long ago the work was done
  that opened Heaven.

C. P. C.
