    Verse 1
    O Saviour, may we never rest
    Till Thou art formed within,
    Till Thou hast calmed our troubled breast,
    And crushed the power of sin.

    Verse 2
    O may we gaze upon Thy Cross,
    Until the wondrous sight
    Makes earthly treasures seem but dross,
    And earthly sorrows light.

    Verse 3
    Until, released from carnal ties,
    Our spirit upward springs,
    And sees true peace above the skies,
    True joy in heavenly things.

    Verse 4
    There as we gaze, may we become
    United, Lord, to Thee,
    And, in a fairer, happier home,
    Thy perfect beauty see.
