134. O When Shall I See Jesus?

1 O when shall I see Jesus,
And reign with him above;
And drink the flowing fountain,
Of everlasting love?

Christ is all the world to me,
And his glory I shall see;
And before I’d leave my Savior,
I’d lay me down and die.

2 When shall I be delivered
From this vain world of sin,
And with my blessed Jesus,
Drink endless pleasures in? [Refrain]

3 But, now I am a soldier;
My Captain’s gone before;
He’s given me my orders,
And bid me not give o’er. [Refrain]

4 And if I hold out faithful,
A crown of life he’ll give;
And all his valiant soldiers
Shall ever with him live. [Refrain]

5 Whene’er you meet with troubles
And trials on your way,
Oh, cast your care on Jesus,
And don’t forget to pray. [Refrain]

6 Gird on the heavenly armor
Of faith, and hope, and love;
And when the combat’s ended,
You’ll reign with him above. [Refrain]
