1 When my course on earth is finished, when my days of toil are o’er,
When the veil is gently lifted ‘twixt me and glory shore,
I shall know my blessed Saviour, when I meet him face to face,
He is all the light and glory of that holy, happy place.

Refrain:
I shall know him, I shall know him,
When I come at last to meet him face to face;
I shall know him, I shall know him,
He is all the light and glory of that place.

2 I shall meet the friends I mourn for when the crowning day shall come;
When my pilgrim days are over I shall know the joys of home;
Best of all, I’ll meet with Jesus, saved forever by his grace,
He is all the light and glory of that holy, happy place. [Refrain]

3 Faith has seen the dear Redeemer lifted up from earth to die,
Now I long to sing his praises with the ransomed in the sky,
Long to share the joys eternal thro’ the riches of his grace,
Where he is the light and glory of that holy, happy place. [Refrain]
