Title: Far off I see the goal

Speaker: Congregation

Bible Reference: Summer Conference Hymn

FAR off I see the goal:
O Saviour, guide me;
I feel my strength is small;
Be Thou beside me:
With vision ever clear,
With love that conquers fear,
And grace to persevere,
O Lord, provide me.

Whene?er Thy way seems strange,
Go Thou before me;
And, lest my heart should change,
O Lord, watch o?er me;
But should my faith prove frail,
And I through blindness fail,
O let Thy grace prevail,
And still restore me.

Should earthly pleasures wane,
And joy forsake me,
If lonely hours of pain
At length o?ertake me,
My hand in Thine hold fast
Till sorrow be o?erpast,
And gentle death at last
For heaven awake me.

There with the ransomed throing
Who praise for ever
The love that made them strong
To serve for ever,
I too would see Thy face,
Thy finished work retrace,
And magnify Thy grace,
Redeemed for ever.

Robert Rowland Roberts, 1865-1945
