1 I know I’ll see the glorious crown
That rests on my Redeemer’s brow,
And view the new Jerusalem
Where many friends await me now.

I know, oh, yes, I know,
When ev’ry tear is wiped away
I’ll sing his praise with angel hosts,
Within the gates of perfect day.

2 Within the gates he’ll take my hand
Within his own dear wounded palm,
I’ll know my sorrows all are o’er,
I’ll have a sweet unending calm. [Chorus]

3 There I shall join the glorious song
That now in weakness I repeat,
The song “Redemption thro’ the Lamb,”
And worship there at Jesus feet. [Chorus]

4 I know the time is drawing near;
‘Tis coming, coming on apace,
When I shall hear my Savior’s voice,
And know and see him face to face. [Chorus]

I know, oh, yes, I know.
