FACE to face with Christ my Savior,

Face to face—what will it be—

When with rapture I behold Him,

Jesus Christ who died for me?

Face to face I shall behold Him,

Far beyond the starry sky;

Face to face in all His glory,

I shall see Him by and by!


Only faintly now I see Him,

With the darkling veil between;

But a blessed day is coming

When His glory shall be seen.


What rejoicing in His presence

When are banished grief and pain;

When the crooked ways are straightened

And the dark things shall be plain.


Face to face! O blissful moment!

Face to face—to see and know;

Face to face with my Redeemer,

Jesus Christ who loves me so.
