Contents of's Baptist Hymnal materials

1.	When my life work is ended, and I cross the swelling tide, 
	When the bright and glorious morning I shall see; 
	I shall know my Redeemer when I reach the other side, 
	And His smile will be the first to welcome me. 

2.	Oh, the soul-thrilling rapture when I view His blessed face, 
	And the luster of His kindly beaming eye; 
	How my full heart will praise Him for the mercy, love, and grace 
	That prepared for me a mansion in the sky. 

3.	Oh, the dear ones in glory, how they beckon me to come, 
	And our parting at the river I recall; 
	To the sweet vales of Eden they will sing my welcome home, 
	But I long to meet my Savior first of all. 

4.	Thro' the gates to the city in a robe of spotless white, 
	He will lead me where no tears will ever fall; 
	In the glad song of ages I shall mingle with delight, 
	But I long to meet my Savior first of all. 

	I shall know Him, I shall know Him, 
	And redeemed by His side I shall stand, 
	I shall know Him, I shall know Him 
	By the print of the nails in His hand.
