  I Shall Be Satisfied  

 

I shall be satisfied when I awaken
    In thy dear likeness, my King and my Lord,--
When the dark prison of death shall be shaken,
    And the freed spirit comes forth at thy word!--
I shall be satisfied, Saviour, be satisfied,
    Wearing thy likeness and near to thy side!
Sinless and sorrowless, robed in thy righteousness,
    What can I ask for in glory beside?

I shall be satisfied loving thee ever,
    Hearing thy accents and sharing thy joy,
Fearing nor change nor estrangement to sever
    Me from my Lord and His blissful employ!--
Satisfied, satisfied, evermore satisfied,
    Wearing thy likeness and near to thy side!
Sinless and sorrowless, robed in thy righteousness,
    What can I ask for in glory beside?

I shall be satisfied when I behold thee,
    I shall be like thee, my Saviour and King!
And, in the radiance that will enfold thee,
    I shall enfolded be, too, while I sing--
Lo, I am satisfied, Saviour, am satisfied,
    Wearing thy likeness and near thy side!
Sinless and sorrowless, robed in thy righteousness,
    What can I ask for in glory beside!

       - Mrs. J. C. Yule
