S.M.


1
O SCENES of heav'nly joy!
The Father's house above;
Where cloudless peace without alloy
Fills all that home of love.
2
The Father's full delight
Is centred in the Son;
And countless tongues in heav'n unite
To tell what He hath done.
3
The Father made us meet
With saints in light to dwell;
And now we chant His praises sweet,
Whose love we know so well.
4
E'en now we taste the love,
And know the mighty power,
By which we'll rise to realms above
When waiting time is o'er.
5
There glory bright and fair
Shines with celestial beam;
For He who suffered once is there,
Its centre and its theme.
6
The Lamb enthroned shall there
Engage each raptured heart;
While myriad saints Christ's likeness bear,
And have with Him their part.
7
Praise Him again, again!
For us the cross He bore;
Now all is Yea, and all Amen,
In Him for evermore.

T. Porter
