Tune: Stanley Smith, 2004
Lyrics: Isaac Watts, 1719
Meter: Common Meter (8,6,8,6)
Lord, ítis an infinite delight
To see Thy lovely face,
To dwell whole ages in Thy sight,
And feel Thy vital rays.

Chorus:

My blessed Lord,
My Savior and my King,
My ransomed soul will sing Your praise
Through all eternity.

While the bright nation sounds Thy praise
From each eternal hill,
Sweet odors of exhaling grace
The happy region fill.

(Chorus)

Thy love, a sea without a shore,
Spreads life and joy abroad,
O! ítis a heavín worth dying for
To see a smiling God.

(Chorus)
