684. Face to Face

1 Face to face with Christ my Savior,
face to face-—what will it be
when with rapture I behold him,
Jesus Christ who died for me?

Face to face I shall behold him,
far beyond the starry sky;
face to face in all his glory,
I shall see him by and by!

2 Only faintly now I see him,
with the darkened veil between;
but a blessèd day is coming
when his glory shall be seen. (Refrain)

3 What rejoicing in his presence
when are banished grief and pain,
when the crooked ways are straightened
and the dark things shall be plain. (Refrain)

4 Face to face! O blissful moment!
Face to face—-to see and know;
face to face with my Redeemer,
Jesus Christ who loves me so. (Refrain)
