Representative Text

1 I shall meet my Savior face to face,
When He calls me to my dwelling place,
I His nail-pierced hands in mine shall hold,
Some sweet daybreak, at the gates of gold.

Chorus:
I shall meet Him face to face;
I shall praise Him for His grace;
Yes, my Savior King I shall behold,
Some sweet daybreak, at the gates of gold.

2 I shall meet Him who has died for me,
Wounded hands and feet and side shall see,
Heav’nly splendors to my gaze unfold,
Some sweet daybreak, at the gates of gold. [Chorus]

3 I shall meet Him in that land of rest,
Dwell forever in my home so blest,
Joy eternal shall my soul enfold,
Some sweet daybreak, at the gates of gold. [Chorus]
