white bird flying


All the darkness of the night has passed away
It is morning in my heart
I am living in the sunlight of the day,
It is morning in my heart

I can hear the songbirds singing their refrain
It is morning in my heart
And I know that life for me begins again
It is morning in my heart


It is morning, it is morning in my heart
Jesus made the gloomy shadows all depart
Songs of gladness now I sing for since Jesus is my King
It is morning, it is morning in my heart

By A. H. Ackley


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.

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

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

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.


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!

By Carrie E. Breck

The Glory of His Presence

I have walked alone with Jesus
in a fellowship divine.
Never more can earth allure me,
I am His and He is mine.

On the mountain I have seen Him,
Christ my Comforter and Friend
And the glory of His presence
Will be with me to the end.

I have seen Him, I have known Him,
And He deigns1 to walk with me;
And the glory of His presence
will be mine eternally.

Oh, the glory of His presence,
Oh, the beauty of His face,
I am His and His forever,
He has saved me by His grace.  

By Oswald J. Smith

“I think the thing many of us will want to do is to spend eternity just being with Him and coming to know Him.” ~J. Vernon McGee
