726. WE SAW THEE NOT

 

We saw Thee not
when Thou didst come
To this poor world of sin and death
Nor yet beheld Thy cottage home
In that despised Nazareth
But we believe Thy footsteps trod
Its streets and plains,
Thou Son of God
But we believe Thy footsteps trod
Its streets and plains,
Thou Son of God

 

VERSE 2

We saw Thee not when lifted high
Amid that wild and savage crew
Nor heard we that imploring cry
"Forgive, they know not what they do!"
But we believe the deed was done
That shook the earth
and veiled the sun
But we believe the deed was done
That shook the earth
and veiled the sun

 

VERSE 3

We gazed not in the open tomb
Where once Thy mangled body lay
Nor saw Thee in that upper room
Nor met Thee on the open way
But we believe that angels said
"Why seek the living with the dead?"
But we believe that angels said
"Why seek the living with the dead?"

 

VERSE 4

We walked not with the chosen few
Who saw thee from the earth ascend
Who raised to Heav'n
their wondering view
Then low to earth all prostrate bend
But we believe that human eyes
Beheld that journey to the skies
But we believe that human eyes
Beheld that journey to the skies
