Hymn 108

Christ unseen and beloved.

1 Pet. 1:5.

Now with our mortal eyes
Have we beheld the Lord;
Yet we rejoice to hear his name,
And love him in his word.

On earth we want the sight
Of our Redeemer's face;
Yet, Lord, our inmost thoughts delight
To dwell upon thy grace.

And when we taste thy love,
Our joys divinely grow
Unspeakable, like those above,
And heav'n begins below.

by Isaac Watts

Please replace the first word Now with Not as in Though you have NOT seen him (1 Pet 1: 8) Thanks!
Surely this should start: “NOT with our mortal eyes“, cf “Though you have NOT seen him“ 1 Peter 1:8
