Face to Face
Revelation 22:4
FACE TO FACE  |  Hymn History  |  Bible Passage
Author: Carrie E. Breck, 1855-1934
Musician: Grant Colfax Tullar, 1869-1950

Face to face with Christ, my Saviour,
Face to face‚ÄĒ what will it be,
When with rapture I behold Him,
Jesus Christ, who died for me?

Refrain:
Face to face I shall behold Him,
Far beyond the starry sky;
Face to face in all His glory,
I shall see Him by and by!

Only faintly now I see Him,
With the darkling veil between;
But a blessed day is coming,
When His glory shall be seen.

What rejoicing in His presence,
When are banished grief and pain;
When the crooked ways are straightened,
And the dark things shall be plain.

Face to face! O blissful moment!
Face to face‚ÄĒ to see and know;
Face to face with my Redeemer,
Jesus Christ, who loves me so.



HYMN HISTORY:

A Pastor, his wife, and Grant Tullar had made their last call on the sick one afternoon in 1898. They hurried to the home of the pastor, wanting to have tea together before going to the evangelistic meetings that were in progress. Tullar was assisting in those services.

In their hurry to get the table spread someone failed to fill the jam dish. There was only a small bite left. The pastor and his wife knew that Tullar was very fond of the jam, so they both refused it. As the dish was passed to him, he exclaimed, 'So this is all for me, is it?' Suddenly, the thought occurred to him that'All for Me' was a good title for a song. The little bit of jam faded into insignificance as Tullar's mind began to think on this new subject. He placed the jam dish back on the table and immediately excused himself, went to the piano and composed a melody and wrote several verses.

Before going to bed that evening, Tullar promised the pastor and his wife that he would revise the work somewhat. He never did, because the next morning the postman brought to him a letter from a lady, Mrs. Frank A. Beck Enclosed were several poems. After reading the very first poem, he became suddenly aware that it exactly fitted the music that he had written the night before. Not a single word of the poem nor his music needed to be changed. After that, he never used his own words, but decided to use those of Mrs. Beck for the song now titled, "Face To Face".

Face to face with Christ my Saviour,
Face to face what will it be?
When with rapture I behold Him,
Jesus Christ who died for me.


BIBLE PASSAGE:

4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.
