10832. The Joy Awaiting

1 Satisfied my highest longing,
Earthly griefs as naught shall be,
When I wake with Christ in glory,
When His face I see.

When His face I see,
When His face I see,
Oh, the joy for me awaiting,
When His face I see.

2 Human mind cannot conceive it,
My Redeemer’s face so fair;
But I know they need no sunshine,
But His smile up there. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ ofttimes the way He leadeth,
Is a way of mystery;
There shall be no more of darkness
When His face I see. [Refrain]

4 Here my tongue can never utter
All the praise within my heart;
There, in Heaven’s song of triumph,
I shall have a part. [Refrain]
