WHEN I MEET JESUS
by Mary Prine
When I meet Jesus face to face, oh what joy shall I feel.
I'll have a million questions, but won't be able to even speak.
My heart will be so filled with his heavenly grace.
When I meet Jesus, I'll want to know, why? about so many things,
and ask him please tell me your story don't leave anything out .
I want to know about his childhood, about his siblings,
about everything he did so trustingly.
When I meet Jesus, I know that I'll hear the heavenly choirs,
I'll know the mansion he has already said he prepared for me,
I 'll know I belong . I can't even imagine the beauty, the joy,
the reflection of happiness that will be there.
I know this painting above by Thomas Kinkade ,is absolutely beautiful,
but fails to even compare to the heaven where Jesus is.
I only know that when I meet Jesus, it will be the most glorious day in my history.
I don't know who will meet me at the Eastern gate,
but I am assured of this, when I meet Jesus, my life will be complete.
I hope that he will take me to meet the ones he has chosen for me to meet,
I hope it will include my Grandmother Milroy, my Sister Audrey Lou
and of course my parents and my husband Larry.
There are others too, but whatever he chooses for me,
I know it will be his choice not mine, and there will be a reason for it.
When I meet Jesus, my love will be complete, I will never want for anything,
I will never be sick, I will never be lonely, or tired.
I will rejoice in his presence and be thankful for his gift to me,
His gift of his life on the cross, the blood he shed for me.
When I meet Jesus !!!
Face to face with Christ my Savior,
Face to face, what will it be,
When in glory I behold Him,
Jesus Christ, Who died for me?
FACE TO FACE
by Geniece Spencer Ingold
1. Precious Lord, I am so grateful that thru a prayer I can talk to You. And when I listen with an open mind, You can tell me what to do.
And when I walk thru the valley of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil for I know you'll be waiting there.
Oh just think, dear Jesus, when we meet face to face,
We'll be glad all my sins are covered under Your blood.
The altar's where I found You, there You saved me by Your grace.
Oh just think, dear Jesus, when we meet face to face.
2. Whether it be at the end of a tunnel or in the middle of the air,
Or maybe at my bedside with angels gathered there.
Or it may be up in heaven where the beauty is so rare.
No matter where I first meet You, the joy will be beyond compare.
"Behold he comes with clouds, and every eye shall see him."
"I saw a new heaven and a new earth... Behold the tabernacle of God is with men, and he shall dwell among them...
and he shall wipe away every tear from their eyes."
"They shall see his face."
