S.M.


1
GOD and the Lamb - 'tis well
I know that source divine
Of joy and love no tongue can tell,
Yet know that all is mine.
2
The Lamb is there, my soul,
Where God Himself doth rest
In love divine diffused through all,
With Him supremely blest.
3
There on the hidden bread
Of Christ, once humbled here -
God's treasured store - for ever fed,
His love my soul shall cheer.
4
Called by that secret name
Of undisclosed delight
(Blest answer to reproach and shame),
Graved on the stone of white.
5
There in effulgence bright,
Saviour and Guide, with Thee
I'll walk, and in Thy heav'nly light
Whiter my robe shall be.
6
There, in th' unsullied way
Which His own hand hath dressed,
My feet press on, where brightest day
Shines forth on all the Rest.
7
But who that glorious blaze
Of living light shall tell
Where all His brightness God displays,
And the Lamb's glories dwell?
8
There with unwearied gaze
Our eyes on Him we'll rest,
And satisfy with endless praise
Our hearts supremely blest.
