Webmaster’s Note: What a wonderful thing to anticipate what it will be like to be with the Lord Jesus. I pray our hearts truly long to see the blessed face of the Lord Jesus in all of His blessedness and glory! Oh to be with Him forever!
“Wherefore we faint not; but if indeed our outward man is consumed, yet the inward is renewed day by day. For our momentary [and] light affliction works for us in surpassing measure an eternal weight of glory; while we look not at the things that are seen, but at the things that are not seen; for the things that are seen [are] for a time, but those that are not seen eternal.” (2 Cor. 4: 16 -18).
What will it be when all life’s toil is finished,
And we have entered our eternal rest;
When past for ever is the night of weeping,
And with Thee, Lord, we are for ever blest!
What will it be when all the strife is over,
And all Thy saints, now scattered far and wide,
Shall be without one shade of variation,
All like Thee, Lord, united by Thy side!
What will it be when sorrow’s day is ended,
And pain and grief for ever passed away;
When with Thee, Lord, we share the bright forever,
In perfect peace throughout the perfect day!
What will it be? – In blest anticipation
E’en now our hearts outpour in praise to Thee;
But when we see Thee face to face in glory,
Then purer, sweeter, shall our praises be.
