William E. Marks (1872–1954)


After my tri­als and trou­bles are past,
After my bur­dens aside have been cast,
I shall see Je­sus my Sav­ior at last,
That will be rap­ture in­deed!


That will be rap­ture in­deed,
Glory and rap­ture in­deed,
When I shall see Him who died on the tree;
O that will be rap­ture for me!

When the last bat­tle with sin shall be o’er,
When the wild tem­pest can beat me no more,
I shall see Je­sus on Hea­ven’s glad shore,
That will be rap­ture in­deed!


When I be­hold Him and praise Him up there,
Singing with an­gels in gar­ments most fair,
When in His glo­ry at last I shall share,
That will be rap­ture in­deed!
