You are there when I am lonely
You are there when I need a friend
I take comfort in Your word
When I get weary and I know You?ll be there to the end

When it?s all said and done and my race has been run

You were there when I had no one to talk to
All of my friends get just a little too busy for me
I don?t care about the things I suffer down here on this earth
It really, It really don?t bother me

Because soon, I?ll be forever in His presence
I know you?ll be there just waiting for me
Your face will be the first face I want to see

I want to see Jesus
You suffered and died for me
Jesus, oh you freed me from myself
I want to see Jesus
And Your face will be the first face I want to see
