Representative Text

1 We shall be like Him, O wonderful thought!
Bless├Ęd the hope the assurance hath wrought:
Changed from the sorrow and trials of years,
We shall be like Him, when Jesus appears.

Refrain:
We shall be like Him,
Oh, how the promise cheers!
We shall be like Him, when Jesus appears.

2 Eye hath not seen, nor hath ear ever heard
What we shall be but, a voice from His word
Whispers a message that charms all our fears,
We shall be like Him, when Jesus appears. [Refrain]

3 Why, then, repine when the roadway is rough?
Are not His word and the promise enough?
Rainbows of love span the valley of tears,
We shall be like Him, when Jesus appears. [Refrain]

4 We shall be like Him, the hope of the soul;
We shall be like Him, made perfectly whole;
Caught up with saints, as the firmament clears,
We shall be like Him, when Jesus appears. [Refrain]
