Full Text

1 When I behold the King
Clothed in glorious majesty,
I shall rejoice and sing.
Jesus died for me.

I shall be satisfied,
With Him they crucified,
Yes, I shall be satisfied,
When I see the King.

2 Crowned King of Calvary,
There He bore my sin and shame,
Conquering death for me,
“Wonderful!” His name. [Chorus]

3 Washed in my Savior’s blood,
I shall pure and spotless be,
Covered as with a flood,
By His love for me. [Chorus]
