We Shall Be Like Him When He Shall Come


We shall be like him, when he shall come in glory;
Like him forever, thro’ riches of his grace;
O what assurance to all God’s children given,
We shall be like him when we see his face.

Refrain:
We shall be like him, we shall be like him,
For we shall see him as he is;
We shall be like him, we shall be like him,
For we shall see him as he is.

We shall be like him, however rough our journey,
Light from his promise shall brighten ev’ry place;
“Like our Redeemer,” our hearts sing hallelujah,
We shall be like him when we see his face. [Refrain]

We shall be like him, the vail will soon be lifted,
Then we shall praise him for all his love and grace;
No more the earthly, but glory grand, eternal,
We shall be like him when we see his face. [Refrain]
