Full Text

1 We shall see Him in the better land,
We shall see Him where no shadows fall;
We shall see the King on His shining throne,
When we hear the angels call.

Ref;
Yes, O yes, we shall see Him,
The King in His beauty we shall see;
When we pass away through the gates of day,
The King in His beauty we shall see.

2 We shall see Him by the crystal sea,
We shall see Him where the saints abide;
We shall see the King in His palace bright,
When we cross the silent tide. [Refrain]

3 We shall see Him in eternal light,
We shall see Him in His joy and love;
We shall see the King where He ever reigns,
When we sleep, to wake above. [Refrain]
