Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

I shall see him, I shall see him, Whom my soul hath long adored

I shall see him, I shall see him, Whom my soul hath long adored

Author: Mrs. E. E. Williams
Tune: [I shall see him, I shall see him]
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1. I shall see him, I shall see him,
Whom my soul hath long adored;
See the King in all his beauty,
To his royal right restored.
He who once despised, rejected,
On the cross was left to die;
Soon shall come in brightest glory,
For his coming draweth nigh.

2. I shall see him, I shall see him,
Oh, the rapture of the thought;
These same eyes shall soon behold him
Who with blood my pardon bought;
For we've seen the signs of promise,
We have heard the "midnight cry;"
Haste, my soul, go forth to meet him,
For his coming draweth nigh.

3. I shall see him, I shall see him,
Praise the Lord, 'twill not be long;
Heralded by heavenly songsters,
Welcomed by the blood-washed throng;
He'll return the self-same Jesus,
From the glory mantled sky;
Wake, ye saints, arouse, be ready,
For his coming draweth nigh.
