1. Tho’ the road may be rough where He leads me,
Still His footprints I plainly can trace,
And the trials I meet with seem nothing,
When I look in my dear Savior’s face.

Refrain
When I look in His face, His wonderful face,
In Heaven, that beautiful place!
All the hardships of earth will seem nothing,
When I look in my dear Savior’s face.

2. So I keep my eyes fixed upon Jesus,
While I’m running life’s wearisome race;
I’ll forget the hard pathway I traveled,
When I look in my dear Savior’s face. [Refrain]

3. Tho’ the shadows around me may gather,
Safe I rest in my Lord’s secret place.
For I know there’ll be glorious sunshine,
When I look in my dear Savior’s face. [Refrain]
