1 There are faces dear that I hold in mem’ry,
Though I lost them long ago;
But the face of One “altogether lovely”
Is the fairest face I know.

His face will outshine them all,
His face will outshine them all;
Glory to the Lamb, hallelujah!
His face will outshine them all.

2 There were voices sweet over Bethl’hem singing
When the Savior Christ was born;
And the golden harps of the angels ringing
Ushered in that holy morn. [Refrain]

3 There are friendly hands unto me extended
When I seem to miss my way;
But the pierced hand of the Man of Calv’ry
Leadeth on to realms of day. [Refrain]

4 There are wondrous scenes lying all around me,
Golden gleams o’er land and sea;
But when Jesus comes in the clouds of heaven,
O what glory that will be. [Refrain]
