H.C 282 t.H.C 59 6. 8s (FE 495) 
“Blessed are they that have nort 
seen and yet have believed"
- John.20:29

1.  WE saw Thee not when Thou didst come

     To this poor world of sin and death 

     Ne'er beheld Thy cottage home

     In that despited Nazareth

     But we believe Thy footsteps trod 

     Its streets and plains, Thou Son of God.

2.  We did not see Thee lifted high 

     Amid that wild and savage crew

    Nor heard Thy meek, imploring cry 

    Forgive,They know not what they do! 

    Yet we believe the deed was done
   Which shook the earth and veiled the sun.

3.  Westood not by the empty tomb 

     Where lateThy sacred body lay 

     Nor sat within that upper room 

     Nor met Thee in the open way

     But we believe that angels said 

     Why seek the living with the dead.

4.  We did not mark the chosen few,

     When Thou didst through the clouds ascend 

     First lift to heav'n their wondering view 

     Then to the earth all prostrate bend

     Yet we believe that mortal eyes

     Beheld that journey to the skies.

5.  And Now that Thou do streign on high 

     And thence Thy waiting people bless

    No ray of glory from the sky

    Doth shine upon our wilderness

    But we believe Thy faithful word,

    And trust in our Redeeming Lord.  Amen
