Representative Text

1 Tho’ the dark clouds rise on the sunny skies,
As I run my earthly race;
There’ll be light above, in the land of love,
When I see my Saviour’s face.

Refrain:
When I see the blessed face,
Of Him who saved me by His grace;
All my sorrows past, joy will come at last—
When I see my Saviour’s face.

2 When temptations press, when in sore distress,
I can find no resting place;
To my heart I say, “they will pass away,
When I see my Saviour’s face.” [Refrain]

3 So I trusting go, thro’ the world below,
Just a sinner saved by grace;
In that heav’nly land, I shall understand,
When I see my Saviour’s face. [Refrain]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
