When my life-work is ended


    • When my life-work is ended, and I cross the swelling tide, 
    • when the bright and glorious morning I shall see; 
    • I shall know my Redeemer when I reach the other side, 
    • and His smile will be the first to welcome me. 

    • I shall know Him, I shall know Him 
    • as redeemed by His side I shall stand, 
    • I shall know Him, I shall know Him 
    • by the print of the nails in His hand. 

    • Oh, the soul-thrilling rapture when I view His blessed face, 
    • and the lustre of His kindly beaming eye; 
    • how my full heart will praise Him for the mercy, love, and grace 
    • that prepares me for a mansion in the sky. 

    • Oh, the dear ones in glory, how they beckon me to come, 
    • and our parting at the river I recall; 
    • to the sweet vales of Eden they will sing my welcome home, 
    • but I long to meet my Saviour first of all. 

    • Through the gates to the city in a robe of spotless white, 
    • He will lead me where no tears shall ever fall; 
    • in the glad song of ages I shall mingle with delight; 
    • but I long to meet my Saviour first of all.
