Representative Text

1. After my trials and troubles are past,
After my burdens aside have been cast,
I shall see Jesus my Savior at last,
That will be rapture indeed!

That will be rapture indeed,
Glory and rapture indeed,
When I shall see Him who died on the tree;
O that will be rapture for me!

2. When the last battle with sin shall be o’er,
When the wild tempest can beat me no more,
I shall see Jesus on Heaven’s glad shore,
That will be rapture indeed! [Refrain]

3. When I behold Him and praise Him up there,
Singing with angels in garments most fair,
When in His glory at last I shall share,
That will be rapture indeed! [Refrain]
