By and by ...

Grace Reese, Adkins

Precious Seed

By and by when I look on His face,
Beautiful face, thorn-shadowed face.
By and by when I look on His face,
I’ll wish I had given Him more.
More, so much more;
More of my life than I e’re gave before.
By and by when I look on His face,
I’ll wish I had given Him more.

By and by when He holds out His hands,
Welcoming hands, nail-pierced hands;
By and by when He holds out His hands,
I’ll wish I had given Him more.
More, so much more,
More of my heart than I e’re gave before.
By and by when He holds out His hands,
I’ll wish I had given Him more.

By and by when I kneel at His feet,
Beautiful feet, nail-riven feet;
By and by when I kneel at His feet,
I’ll wish I had given Him more.
More, so much more,
More of my heart than I e’re gave before,
By and by when I kneel at His feet,
I’ll wish I had given Him more.

By and by when I sit in His throne
Glorious throne, wonderful throne;
By and by when I sit in His throne,
I'll wish I had given Him more.
More, so much more,
More of my heart than I e're gave before,
By and by when I sit in His throne
I'll wish I had given Him more.

In the light of that heavenly place,
Light from His face, beautiful face;
In the light of that heavenly place,
I'll wish I had given Him more.
More, so much more,
Treasures unbounded for Him I adore,
By and by when I look on His face
I'll wish I had given Him more.
