Key signature: B flat major (2 flats)
Meter: 220.127.116.11 with Refrain
1. Face to face with Christ my Savior, Face to face—what will it be When with rapture I behold Him, Jesus Christ who died for me?
Refrain: Face to face I shall behold Him, Far beyond the starry sky; Face to face in all His glory, I shall see Him by and by!
2. Only faintly now I see Him With the darkling veil between, But a blessed day is coming When His glory shall be seen.
3. What rejoicing in His presence, When are banished grief and pain; When the crooked ways are straightened And the dark things shall be plain.
4. Face to face— O, blissful moment! Face to face— to see and know; Face to face with my Redeemer, Jesus Christ Who loves me so.
