And shall we see Thy face,
 
And hear Thy heavenly voice,
 
Well known to us in present grace?
 
Well may our hearts rejoice.
Revelation 22:4; John 5:25; Romans 5:2

With Thee in garments white,
 
Lord Jesus, we shall walk;
 
And spotless in that heavenly light,
 
Of all Thy sufferings talk.
Revelation 3:4; Ephesians 5:27; Luke 9:31
3
Close to Thy trusted side,
 
In fellowship divine;
 
No cloud, no distance, e'er shall hide
 
Glories that then shall shine.
4
Fruit of Thy boundless love,
 
That gave Thyself for us;
 
Forever we shall with Thee prove
 
That Thou still lov'st us thus.
Ephesians 5:25
5
And we love Thee, blest Lord,
 
E'en now, though feeble here,
 
Thy sorrow and Thy cross record
 
What makes us know Thee near.
1 Peter 1:8
6
We wait to see Thee, Lord,
 
Yet now within our hearts
 
Thou dwell'st in love that doth afford
 
The joy that love imparts.
1 Thessalonians 1:10; Ephesians 3:17; John 15:9-11
7
Yet still we wait for Thee,
 
To see Thee as Thou art;
 
Be with Thee, like Thee, Lord, and free
 
To love with all our heart.
