1 Would you mount temptation’s wave?
Get face to face with Jesus!
Would you know His pow’r to save?
Get face to face with Jesus!

Chorus:
Face to face, face to face,
Get face to face with Jesus!
This to know, He loves you so,
Get face to face with Jesus!

2 Would you know your sins forgiv’n?
Get face to face with Jesus!
Have a foretaste here of heav’n?
Get face to face with Jesus! [Chorus]

3 Would you know how great His love?
Get face to face with Jesus!
All its heights and depths to prove?
Get face to face with Jesus! [Chorus]

4 Would you know Him as a Friend?
Get face to face with Jesus!
On His care would you depend?
Get face to face with Jesus! [Chorus]

5 Would you conquer in the strife?
Get face to face with Jesus!
Would you win eternal life?
Get face to face with Jesus! [Chorus]
