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]
