We shall be like Him, the Son of God most holy,
We shall be like Him, sweet promise of His grace!
Christian, press forward! some bright, some glad tomorrow
We shall be like Him, for we shall see His face.

Refrain

We shall be like Him, we shall be like Him,
For we shall see Him as He is;
We shall be like Him, we shall be like Him,
For we shall see Him as He is.

We shall be like Him, this promise lights the future,
Shedding soft radiance upon our pathway dim.
He who redeemed us, the Lamb once slain on Calv’ry,
Shines now in glory, and we shall be like Him.

Refrain

We shall be like Him, the glorified Redeemer;
His lovingkindness this added grace bestows!
We shall behold Him no more with clouded vision,
Brighter and brighter to faith the prospect grows.

Refrain
