Shirley Verrett - Face To Face

English

Face To Face

I know not now how soon 'twill be,
When I shall reach that vast unknown.
I know not now, I cannot see
The entrance to the Heavenly Home.
Alas! Alas! 'Tis better so,
For time moves on with rapid pace.
But this I know, when I shall go,
That I shall see Him face to face.
 
Yes, I shall see Him face to face,
And be with those I love once more.
Yes, I shall see Him face to face,
And be with Him forever more.
 
For life must come and life must go,
The winters pass, the spring flowers grow.
And though the bliss be but alloy,
'Tis less of pain with more of joy.
It matters not a few years more,
It matters not how quick the pace,
For this I know, on that fair shore,
That I shall see Him face to face.
 
Yes, I shall see Him face to face,
And be with those I love once more.
Yes, I shall see Him face to face,
And be with Him forever more.
