When I Shall See Jesus

Representative Text

1 When in His beauty the King I shall see,
Chris the Redeemer once wounded for me;
See Him who died on the cross for my sin,
That life eternal thro' grace I might win.

When I shall see Jesus
Some glorious day,
Earth's sorrows forgotten,
Tears all wiped away;
For all of life's toiling
'Twill richly repay,
When I shall see Jesus,
Some glorious day.

2 See Him exalted in glory on high,
No more for sinners to suffer and die;
No more despised and rejected of men,
Living in glory, forever to reign. [Chorus]

3 What tho' a pilgrim and stranger I roam?
I have a mansion in Heaven, my home;
There, while the ages unceasingly roll,
How I will praise Him for saving my soul! [Chorus]

Lelia (Mrs. C.H.) Morris (1862-1929) was born in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio. When her family moved to Malta on the Muskingum River she and her sister and mother had a millinery shop in McConnelsville. She and her husband Charles H. Morris were active in the Methodist Episcopal Church and at the camp meetings in Sebring and Mt. Vernon. She wrote hymns as she did her housework. Although she became blind at age 52 she continued to write hymns on a 28-foot long blackboard that her family had built for her. She is said to have written 1000 texts and many tunes including "Sweeter as the years go by." Mary Louise VanDyke Go to person page >
