So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site.

Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Full Text

1 No one can tell when the Saviour shall come,
Whether in day or in night’s solemn gloom;
But this we know, and it bringeth sweet cheer,
“We shall be like Him,” “when He shall appear.”

When He shall appear, when He shall appear,
We shall be like Him when He shall appear!

2 O, blessed hope, that hath lifted the weak,
And thrilled with rapture the thirsty who seek
Joy at the Fountain that flows ever clear;
“We shall be like Him,” “when He shall appear.” [Refrain]

3 Even to me this sweet promise is giv’n,
That I may shine in the glory of heav’n:
Life’s heavy burdens I’ll cheerfully bear;
“We shall be like Him,” “when He shall appear.” [Refrain]

4 O, let us strive, then, to work with a will;
Soon He will come and His promise fulfill,
Ever e ready His summons to hear;
“We shall be like Him,” “when He shall appear.” [Refrain]
