O Blissful Moment!


Last night, a precious saint and member of our church lost a battle, but, by the grace of God in Christ, won the war. He has fought the good fight, finished the course, and kept the faith. He has now received his crown of righteousness (1 Timothy 4:7–8). He was a godly man, an encouraging example of faith, and I am grateful to have known him.

As I have thought of little else today, this hymn has been a source of joy in the midst of grief.

Face to Face

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.

Only faintly now I see Him,
With the darkling veil between;
But a blessed day is coming
When His glory shall be seen.
Refrain

What rejoicing in His presence
When are banished grief and pain;
When the crooked ways are straightened
And the dark things shall be plain.
Refrain

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.
Refrain

For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known. —1 Corinthians 13:12
