Representative Text

1 When the Savior comes for His chosen ones,
We’ll be like Him, we’ll be like Him;
With the bright daybreak when the dead awake;
We’ll be like Him when He comes.

Refrain:
We’ll be like Him, sing the glad refrain;
We’ll be like Him when He comes again;
Blessèd thought to me that His face I’ll see,
And be like Him when He comes.

2 Let the message rain upon hill and plain,
We’ll be like Him, we’ll be like Him;
Send it far and wide on the Gospel tide;
We’ll be like Him when He comes. [Refrain]

3 He’s the One we love, He’s the one we prove,
We’ll be like Him, we’ll be like Him;
He’s the One who cheers thro’ the weary years;
We’ll be like Him when He comes. [Refrain]

4 Tho’ He tarry long, this will be our song,
We’ll be like our king when He comes again;
Tho’ the path be dim we will cling to Him;
We’ll be like Him when He comes.

Refrain:
We’ll be like our King, sing the glad refrain;
We’ll be like our King when He comes again;
Blessèd thought to me that His face I’ll see,
And be like Him when He comes.
