His Face They Will See

1
Gospel of glory
Illumines the blind;
Out of the darkness
God’s light brightly shines;
Image of God come
Enlighten our heart;
Face of Christ Jesus,
God’s glory impart.
2
With faces open,
The Lord Spirit see;
As glass reflecting,
His likeness bear we;
Glory to glory—
We’re being transformed;
To the same image
We’ll soon be conformed.
3
What love the Father
Has given to us;
Children of God have
Such hope glorious;
At His appearing—
Most surely shall we
See Him as He is,
And like Him we’ll be.
4
Blessing eternal
For God’s own redeemed;
He and the Lamb as
The light on them beam;
His slaves will serve Him,
No curse will there be;
His name upon them,
His face they will see.
5
Grant us, O God, to
Be pure in our heart;
That we may see You,
And never depart;
Face to face always
With You we’ll remain;
Joy of Your presence,
Forever we’ll gain.
