1 Just to see Jesus, whose love is so precious!
Jesus my Savior! my Helper is He;
Just to see Jesus fill heaven with gladness,
That will be glory, be glory for me.

Refrain:
Just to see Jesus receiving His glory,
Wonderful Savior, Hallelujah! ‘tis He!
Just to see Jesus, to praise and adore Him,
That will be glory, be glory for me.

2 Just to see Jesus, once scarred as Redeemer!
Jesus my Lord, from all suffering free;
Just to see Jesus transfigured forever,
That will be glory, be glory for me. [Refrain]

3 Just to see Jesus in heaven exalted!
Jesus, who died upon Calvary’s tree;
Just to see Jesus, with sainted ones singing,
That will be glory, be glory for me. [Refrain]

4 Just to see Jesus when saved ones are gath’ring!
Dying as Savior, now risen is He;
Just to see Jesus—to bow in His presence—
That will be glory, be glory for me. [Refrain]
