Representative Text

1 The Christ is found, we’ve waited long,
The Holy One, the Promised One;
Our fears are gone, our hopes are strong
In God’s victorious Son.

Oh, look and believe, oh, come and receive
The Christ who died for thee;
The Son of Man is the Son of God;
Come, doubting heart, and see.

2 The Man of Grief shall dry thy tears,
His hands were bound to set thee free,
His blood shall cleanse the sin of years,
Come, trembling heart, and see. [Refrain]

3 He calms the storm to give thee peace,
He dies thine endless life to be,
He lives to bid thy sorrow cease,
Now come to him and see. [Refrain]

Owens, Priscilla Jane, was born July 21, 1829, of Scotch and Welsh descent, and is now (1906) resident at Baltimore, where she is engaged in public-school work. For 50 years Miss Owen has interested herself in Sunday-school work, and most of her hymns were written for children's services. Her hymn in the Scotch Church Hymnary, 1898, "We have heard a joyful sound" (Missions), was written for a Sunday-school Mission Anniversary, and the words were adapted to the chorus "Vive le Roi" in the opera The Huguenots.
