176. Lord, We Shall See Thee as Thou Art

Lord, we shall see Thee as Thou art
In yonder mansions fair,
We shall behold Thee face to face,
Thy glorious image bear.
1 John 3:2; Revelation 22:4; 1 Corinthians 15:49; 2 Corinthians 3:18
With what delight, what wond'ring love,
Each thrilling heart shall swell,
When we, as sharers of Thy joy,
Are called in heaven to dwell!
Matthew 25:21
Oh hasten, hasten on that hour,
And call us to Thy seat:
Lord, Thou without us ne'er wilt count
Thy joy and work complete.
John 17:24
