Advent Hymnals

875. I SHALL BE SATISFIED

Christ in Song,

1.
Soul amid earth sorrows dwelling,
Sighing for the strife to cease,
Lo!  the promise sweet foretelling
Soon shall come the Prince of Peace.

Chorus:
I shall be satisfied then,
I shall be satisfied then;
When the King of kings, with angels attending,
Rends the azure sky, in glory descending,
When the saints awake in his own likeness,
I shall be satisfied then.

2.
Saddened by the world's complaining,
Burdened with the ceaseless care,
Tell me!  is there rest remaining
For the toilers over there?  [Chorus]

3.
Patient wait God's time for going,
Murmur not though long thy stay,
Ever trusting, ever knowing
Thou shalt dwell with him some day.  [Chorus]

4.
Born of God, the soul can never
Willing here with sin abide;
Earth is not the glad forever
Where the soul is satisfied.  [Chorus]
