Lyrics

We would see Jesus;
Show us Thy loving face;
Draw us, dear Lord, to Thee,
Close in Thy fond embrace.

Refrain

Nothing between, dear Jesus,
Nothing between;
O come in love so near us,
Nothing between,
Nothing between.

We would see Jesus;
Let us Thy glory see;
Shine with a brighter ray,
Bidding the darkness flee.

Refrain

We would see Jesus;
Nothing of earthly din
Coming, O Lord, between,
Nothing of pride or sin.
