WE SHALL BEHOLD HIM!

On early Sunday morning, May 11, 2008 near Mt. Vernon, Missouri, gospel singer and song writer Dottie Rambo was killed in a bus accident. She had performed a concert at Granite City, Illinois and was on her way to another concert in Texas when the accident ocurred. She opened her lst concert with I'll Leave Here Shouting and closed it with We Shall Behold Him, the song below. Although the song has just two verses, I consider it one of the most majestic songs about our Lord's second coming. If you have ever heard Dottie sing it, you know what I mean. Pray for her family and especially her daughter Reba, who lost her mother on Mother's day.

The song describes very beautifuly the excitement of His coming. I think the verses are filled with the richness of his coming in the clouds to receive His own. Dottie mentions "the sweet light of His eyes." Our Lord will take great delight in His coming to meet His bride, and we "shall behold Him!"

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. ( 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 )



We Shall Behold Him


Words and Music by Dottie Rambo

The sky shall unfold, preparing His entrance;
The stars shall applaud Him with thunders of praise.
The sweet light in His eyes shall enhance those a waiting,
And we shall behold Him then face to face.

Chorus

And we shall behold Him, we shall behold Him
Face to face in all of His glory;
And we shall behold Him, Yes, we shall behold Him
Face to face, our Saviour and Lord.

The angels shall sound the shout of His coming,
The sleeping shall rise from their slumbering place.
And those who remain shall be changed in a moment,
And we shall behold Him then face to face.

Chorus

And we shall behold Him, we shall behold Him
Face to face in all of His glory;
And we shall behold Him, Yes, we shall behold Him
Face to face, our Saviour and Lord.
We shall behold Him, our Saviour and Lord.
