Poets’ Corner – Hast Thou Heard Him, Seen Him, Known Him?

1. Hast thou heard Him, seen Him, known Him?
Is not thine a captured heart?
Chief among ten thousand own Him,
Joyful choose the better part.

Chorus: Captivated by His beauty, 
Worthy tribute haste to bring. 
Let His peerless worth constrain thee, 
Crown Him now unrivaled King. 

2. What can strip the seeming beauty,
From the idols of the earth?
Not a sense of right or duty,
But the sight of peerless worth.

3. ‘Tis that look that melted Peter,
’Tis that face that Stephen saw,
‘Tis that heart that wept with Mary,
Can alone from idols draw.

– Ora Rowan (1834-1879), see arrangement in Indelible Grace VI
