[Through composed]
I know not now how soon t'will be,
When I shall reach that vast un-known,
I know not now, I can-not see
the ent-rance to the Heav-enly throne.

A-las! A-las! 'Tis bet-ter so,
For time moves on with rap-id 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, for-ev-er-more.

For life must come and life must go,
The Win-ters pass, The Spring flowers grow.
And tho' the bliss be but al-loy,
'Tis less of pain, with more of joy,

It mat-ters not a few years more,
It mat-ters 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, for-ev-er-more.
