For just a moment I wish I could have been there To see Your first step, hear Your very first word Tell me, did You ever fall and scrape Your knee? Did You know Your wounds would one day heal the world?
For just one moment I wish I could have seen You growing Learning the way of a carpenters son Just a little boy gazing at the stars Did You remember creating every one?
If You passed by, would I have seen a child or a King? Or would I have known?
CHORUS I wish I could have been there My only wish is to see You face to face I wish I could have been there Just to see You, Jesus, face to face
For just a moment I wish I could have been there When You left Your footprints upon the waves To walk along beside You, never look away Just Your whisper and the wind and sea obey
To see You feed the people To feel the healing in Your touch
To hear You pray in the garden alone Laying down Your will with each tear To see You walk that lonely road Willing to die for me
And in that moment I know I should have been there You took my cross and gave Your life
But You live again! I wish I could have been there I wish I could have seen You rise again I wish I could have been there My only wish is to see You face to face Someday Ill be there, Im gonna be there Ill see Your face, Your mercy and grace Someday, someday Someday Ill see You, my Jesus Face to face
