Face to Face With Christ My Savior

Representative Text

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 blessed 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- oh, blissful moment!
Face to face- to see and know;
Face to face with my Redeemer,
Jesus Christ who loves me so. [Refrain]


1 En presencia estar de Cristo,
ver su rostro, ¿qué será?,
cuando al fin, en pleno gozo
mi alma le contemplará.

¡Cara a cara espero verle,
más allá del cielo azul;
cara a cara en plena gloria
he de ver a mi Jesús!

2 Sólo tras oscuro velo,
hoy lo puedo aquí mirar,
mas ya pronto viene el día
que su gloria ha de mostrar. [Estribillo]

3 ¡Cuánto gozo habrá con Cristo!
cuando no haya más dolor,
cuando cesen los peligros
y ya estemos en su amor. [Estribillo]

4 Cara a cara, ¡cuán glorioso
ha de ser así vivir!,
ver el rostro de quien quiso
nuestras almas redimir! [Estribillo]
