95. Soon Will Our Savior

1 Soon will our Savior from heaven appear;
Sweet is the hope and its power to cheer;
All will be changed by a glimpse of His face -
This is the goal at the end of our race!

Chorus:
Oh, what a change, Oh, what a change,
When I shall see His wonderful face!
Oh, what a change, Oh, what a change,
When I shall see His face!

2 Loneliness changed to reunion complete,
Absence exchanged for a place at His feet,
Sleeping ones raised in a moment of time,
Living ones changed to His image sublime! [Chorus]

3 Sunrise will chase all the darkness away,
Night will be changed to the brightness of day,
Tempest will change to ineffable calm,
Weeping will change to a jubilant psalm! [Chorus]

4 Weakness will change to magnificent strength,
Failure will change to perfection at length,
Sorrow will change to unending delight,
Walking by faith change to walking by sight! [Chorus]
