When We Awake in His Likeness

"When We Awake in His Likeness" by O. P. Speirs

Psalm 17:15 As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.

1. We are trav'ling thru life's journey, 
Hope and fear are side by side, 
Hope to waken in His likeness 
And be satisfied.

2. Tis a hope we long have cherished,
Tis a stay whate'er betide, 
That we'll waken in His likeness, 
And be satisfied. 

3. When this weary life is over, 
When we've lain us down and died, 
And we waken in His likeness 
We'll be satisfied.

This probably the same O. P. Speirs mentioned in the Signs of the Times, December 1908. This O. P. Speirs lived in Claremont, California and was involved in the organization of the Little Flock Old School Predestinarian Baptist Church in October 1908. This may be the Oliver P. Speirs buried at Oak Park in Claremont, California.

This song appears in the Harp of Ages, No. 377, and the Old School Hymnal, No. 499.
