Representative Text

1 When I shall reach the more excellent glory,
And all my trials are passed,
I shall be like Him, O wonderful story!
I shall be like Him at last.

I shall be like Him, I shall be like Him,
And in His beauty shall sine,
I shall be like Him, wondrously like Him,
Jesus, my Saviour divine.

2 We shall not wait till the glorious dawning
Breaks on the vision so fair,
Now we may welcome the heavenly morning,
Now we His image may bear. (Chorus)

3 More and more like Him, repeat the blest story,
Over and over again,
Changed by His Spirit from glory to glory,
I shall be satisfied then. (Chorus)
