Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

175. What Will it Be When We See Him?

1 If singing His praises is sweet to us here,
What will it be when we see Him?
And if to our hearts His own Word grows more dear,
What will it be when we see Him?

Chorus:
What will it be when we see Him?
What will it be when we see Him?
We shall in an instant be wholly transformed,
We’ll know what He is when we see Him.

2 How blest are the moments with Him which we spend,
What will it be when we see Him?
When perfect communion all tho't will transcend,
What will it be when we see Him? [Chorus]

3 If we upon earth are amazed at His grace,
What will it be when we see Him?
If here, tho' but dimly, His beauty we trace,
What will it be when we see Him? [Chorus]

4 Our heart burns within us when His voice is heard,
What will it be when we see Him?
And love to Himself in each bosom is stirred,
What will it be when we see Him? [Chorus]
