"And Shall We
See Thy Face"
AND shall we see Thy face,
And hear Thy heavenly voice,
Well known to us in present grace?
Well may our hearts rejoice.
With Thee in garments white,
Lord Jesus, we shall walk;
And spotless in that heavenly light,
Of all Thy sufferings talk.
Close to Thy trusted side,
In fellowship divine;
No cloud, no distance, e'er shall hide
Glories that then shall shine.
Fruit of Thy boundless love,
That gave Thyself for us;
For ever we shall with Thee prove
That Thou still lov'st us thus.
And we love Thee, blest Lord,
E'en now, though feeble here,
Thy sorrow and Thy cross record
What makes us know Thee near.
We wait to see Thee, Lord,
Yet now within our hearts
Thou dwell'st in love that doth afford
The joy that love imparts.
Yet still we wait for Thee,
To see Thee as Thou art;
Be with Thee, like Thee, Lord, and free
To love with all our heart.
~By John Nelson Darby (1800-1882)~
A Little Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:
Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing
of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
Oh glorious day when we shall see the beautiful face of the
Lord Jesus Christ! The Bible describes His glory and He is
"seated on the right hand of the Majesty on high" but at the present
we see through a dark glass dimly but someday we shall see our
beloved Savior face to face! Oh! to see our Savior in person! The
One who redeemed us and purchased us with His own blood. What a
blessed day is coming!! We wait expectantly for Him to appear and our
Lord gave us this promise that He shall return. We wait for that day!
Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD,
and whose hope the LORD is.
Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts:
for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.
