8.8.6.8.8.6.


1
WHAT rich eternal bursts of priase
Shall fill yon courts through endless days,
When time shall cease to be!
Round and around the notes shall swell,
As each redeemed one joins to tell
Thy love, so vast so free.
2
Each shall the Saviour's likeness bear,
And royal crown each brow shall wear,
And robes unsullied white.
The everlasting song shall be
To Thee, O Lamb of God, to Thee,
'Mid scenes of purest light.
3
Our joy unhindered then with Thee,
Our eyes undimmed Thy glory see,
Whilst worth praise we give.
As we await that cloudless day,
Our burning hearts with rapture say
He died that we might live!

G.W. Fraser
