How long, dear Savior...?




How long, dear Savior, Oh how long

Shall this bright hour delay?
Fly swift around, ye wheels of time,
And bring the promised day.
That holy, happy place,
The new Jerusalem comes down,
Adorned with shining grace.
Removes His blest abode;
Men, the dear object of His grace,
And He the loving God.
And He the loving God.

How long, dear Savior, Oh how long
From the third heav'n, where God resides,
The God of glory down to men
Men, the dear object of His grace,
And He the loving God.
