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.

Representative Text

1 Satisfied my highest longing,
Earthly griefs as naught shall be,
When I wake with Christ in glory,
When His face I see.

When His face I see,
When His face I see;
Oh, the joy for me awaiting,
When His face I see.

2 Human mind cannot conceive it,
My Redeemer’s face so fair;
But I know they need no sunshine,
But His smile up there. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ oft-times the way He leadeth,
Is a way of mystery;
There shall be no more of darkness
When His face I see. [Refrain]

4 Here my tongue can never utter
All the praise within my heart;
There, in heaven’s song of triumph,
I shall have a part. [Refrain]
