Representative Text

1 Sin may leave its mark on me
That no eye but God can see,
But from this I shall be free,
When I awake.

“As for me, as for me,
When I behold His face in righteousness,
I shall be satisfied,
I shall be satisfied,
When I awake,
When I awake in His likeness.”

2 On the rocks of trouble wrecked,
Body bent, but soul erect,
Naught shall fail that I expect,
When I awake. [Refrain]

3 In His robe of righteousness,
My “All-perfect heav’nly dress,”
I with joy shall Him confess,
When I awake. [Refrain]
