Memorials of F. R. H., by Frances Havergal's sister, says:

Some time afterwards, in answer to my question when we were talking quietly together, Frances said, "Yes, it was on Advent Sunday, December 2, 1873, I first saw clearly the blessedness of true consecration. I saw it as a flash, and when you see it you can never unsee."

Thou art coming, O my Savior, Thou art coming, O my King,
In Thy beauty all resplendent, in Thy glory all transcendent;
Well may we rejoice and sing:
Coming! in the opening east herald brightness slowly swells;
Coming! O my glorious Priest, hear we not Thy golden bells?

Thou art coming, Thou art coming; we shall meet Thee on Thy way,
We shall see Thee, we shall know Thee, we shall bless Thee, we shall show Thee
All our hearts could ever say:
What an anthem that will be, ringing out our love to Thee,
Pouring out our rapture sweet at Thine own all glorious feet.

Thou art coming; at Thy table we are witnesses for this;
While remembering hearts Thou meetest in communion clearest, sweetest,
Earnest of our coming bliss,
Showing not Thy death alone, and Thy love exceeding great;
But Thy coming and Thy throne, all for which we long and wait.

Thou art coming, we are waiting with a hope that cannot fail,
Asking not the day or hour, resting on Thy Word of power,
Anchored safe within the veil.
Time appointed may be long, but the vision must be sure;
Certainty shall make us strong, joyful patience can endure.

O the joy to see Thee reigning, Thee, my own belovèd Lord!
Every tongue Thy Name confessing, worship, honor, glory, blessing
Brought to Thee with glad accord;
Thee, my Master and my Friend, vindicated and enthroned;
Unto earth's remotest end glorified, adored, and owned!
