Have I an object, LORD, below
Which would divide my heart from Thee
Which would divert its even flow,
In answer to Thy constancy?
Oh, teach me quickly to return
And cause my heart afresh to burn!

Have I a hope, however dear
Which would defer Thy coming, LORD
Which would detain my spirit here,
Where naught can lasting joy afford?
From it, my Saviour, set me free!
To look and long and wait for Thee.

Be Thou the object, bright and fair
To fill and satisfy the heart.
My hope to meet Thee in the air
And nevermore from Thee to part;
That I may undistracted be
To follow, serve and wait for Thee.

(George West Frazer, 1830-1896)
