Representative Text

1 O what rapture! we shall be like Him,
Like Him the Son of God on high,
When we shall see Him in clouds of glory,
On that bright morning drawing nigh.

Refrain:
“We shall be like Him, we shall be like Him,
For we shall see Him as He is;”
“We shall be like Him, we shall be like Him,
For we shall see Him as He is.”

2 Wondrous glory! soon ‘twill be shining,
Soon from the east to all appear;
Sickness and sorrow with sin be flying,
Glorious day, ‘tis drawing near! [Refrain]

3 Working, watching, earnest endeavor,
Longing to see His blessed face;
In nothing idle, joyful in labor,
Bringing His Kingdom on apace. [Refrain]

4 Bless’d assurance to know we’re ready—
Signs of His coming multiply—
Hasten to gather sheaves for the Kingdom,
Joyfully meet Him in the sky. [Refrain]
