1 I am glad I found the Saviour, for He makes my heart rejoice,
And I feel within my soul His saving grace;
But I want to talk with Jesus, hear His loving, gentle voice,
I want to see my Saviour face to face.

O I want to see my Saviour face to face,
Who hath loved me and redeemed me by His grace;
In His kingdom, crowned with glory, on His everlasting throne,
I want to see my Saviour face to face.

2 Yes, I know He ever loves me, daily guide my erring feet,
And I’m resting in His tender, fond embrace;
But I want to know Him better, and my dear Redeemer meet,
I want to see my Saviour face to face.

O I want to see my Saviour face to face,
Who hath loved me and redeemed me by His grace;
In His kingdom, crowned with glory, on His everlasting throne,
I want to see my Saviour face to face.

3 When life’s sun is slowly setting, twilight shadows veil the sky,
And I’m near the ending of life’s weary race;
In my heart will be this longing, none but Christ can satisfy,
I want to see my Saviour face to face.

O I want to see my Saviour face to face,
Who hath loved me and redeemed me by His grace;
In His kingdom, crowned with glory, on His everlasting throne,
I want to see my Saviour face to face.

4 When I tread the crystal pavement of the new Jerusalem,
Where my Saviour has prepared for me a place;
Where the angel choirs are singing praise and glory to the lamb,
O then I’ll see my Saviour face to face.

O then I’ll see my Saviour face to face,
Who hath loved me and redeemed me by His grace;
In His kingdom, crowned with glory, on His everlasting throne,
I want to see my Saviour face to face.
