(The link below is a small biography on Max Isaac Reich the writer of this poem/hymn)
That I might know Him
Let this be life’s aim
Still to explore the wealth stored in Him name.
With heaven – bought intelligence to trace
The glories that light up His sinless face
That I might know His power day by day
Protecting, guiding in the upward way
That I might know His presence calm and pure
Changeless midst changes and midst losses sure
To dwell with Him in Spirit day and night.
To walk with Him by faith, if not by sight
To work with Him, as He shall plan, not I
To cleave to Him and let the world go by
To live on earth a life of selfless love
To set the mind and heart on things above
Till I shall see Him without vision dim
And know Him as I know I’m known of Him!
Max Isaac Reich
