We Shall Behold Him
Fleta R. Robinson

Today I listened to a choir, accompanied by a gifted pianist, sing:

                         We Shall Behold Him

The sky shall unfold preparing His entrance;
The stars shall applaud Him with thunders of praise.
The sweet light in His eyes shall enhance those a-waiting;
And we shall behold Him then face to face.

Refrain:

    And we shall behold Him, we shall behold Him,
    Face to face in all of His glory.
    O we shall behold Him, we shall behold Him
    Face to face, our Savior and Lord.

The angel shall sound the shout of His coming;
The sleeping shall rise from their slumbering place.
And those who remain shall be changed in a moment,
And we shall behold Him then face to face.  
   - Dottie Rambo, I John 3:2

My eyes filled with tears of joyous expectation!

I’m totally unimpressed with the wide variety of comments about what we will be like in Heaven – everything from having wings to – etc. etc. etc.

What I eagerly anticipate is seeing “our Savior and Lord.”  We shall behold HIM. I expect to see my gone-on-before family members, and countless friends.  But an eagerness enveloped my spirit as I heard these excellent musicians sing, "We shall behold HIM!"

Heavenly Father, please grant me the ability to awaken the same yearning excitement in those who do not yet know You as their Savior and Lord.
                                                                        In Jesus name,
                                                                        Amen.

He is Alive!
