135. My Saviour First of All

  1. When my lifework 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 nail in His hand.

  2. O, the soul-thrilling rapture when I view His blessed face,

    And the luster of His kindly beaming eye;

    How my full heart will praise Him for the mercy, love and grace,

    That prepares for me a mansion in the sky.

  3. Through the gates to the city in a robe of spotless white,

    He will lead me where no tears will ever fall;

    In the glad song of ages I shall mingle with delight;

    But I long to see my Saviour first of all.

Something wrong? Let me know.
