When We See Christ

When We See Christ

Often times the day seems long, our trials hard to bear,
We're tempted to complain, to mummer and despair;
But Christ will soon appear to catch His Bride away,
All tears forever over in God's eternal day.


Chorus
It will be worth it all when we see Jesus,
Life's trials will seem so small when we see Christ;
One glimpse of His dear face all sorrow will erase,
So bravely run the race till we see Christ.


Sometimes the sky looks dark with not a ray of light,
We're tossed and driven on, no human in sight;
But there is one in heaven who knows our deepest care,
Let Jesus solve your problems just go to Him in prayer.


Chorus
It will be worth it all when we see Jesus,
Life's trials will seem so small  when we see Christ;
One glimpse of His dear face all sorrow will erase,
So bravely run the race till we see Christ.


Life's day will soon be over, All storms forever past,
We'll cross the great divide to glory, Safe at last;
We'll share the joys of heaven a harp, a home, a crown,
The tempter will be banished, We'll lay our burden down.


Chorus
It will be worth it all when we see Jesus,
Life's trials will seem so small when we see Christ;
One glimpse of His dear face all sorrow will erase,
So bravely run the race till we see Christ.


Written by Ester Kerr Rusthoi 1909 - 1962.


I like this hymn because we can always turn to Jesus when we are going through trials and lay our burden down before him.
