Here O My Lord I See Thee Face to Face
Horatius Bonar (1808-1889) wrote this lovely text: "Here, O my Lord, I see thee face to face; here would I touch and handle things unseen." Mr. Robison has set the hymn tune in unmetered measures, which is the reasoning behind the 1+ rating. Otherwise, the handbell part is a single line, thirteen measures long, which consists of quarter, half and dotted-half notes exclusively. This line may be played on nine chimes or bells ranging from D5 to F#6.
