Hymn Selection



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.
The Lamb is there, my soul,
Where God Himself doth rest
In love divine diffused through all,
With Him supremely blest.
There on the hidden bread
Of Christ, once humbled here -
God's treasured store - for ever fed,
His love my soul shall cheer.
Called by that secret name
Of undisclosed delight
(Blest answer to reproach and shame),
Graved on the stone of white.
There in effulgence bright,
Saviour and Guide, with Thee
I'll walk, and in Thy heav'nly light
Whiter my robe shall be.
There, in th' unsullied way
Which His own hand hath dressed,
My feet press on, where brightest day
Shines forth on all the Rest.
But who that glorious blaze
Of living light shall tell
Where all His brightness God displays,
And the Lamb's glories dwell?
There with unwearied gaze
Our eyes on Him we'll rest,
And satisfy with endless praise
Our hearts supremely blest.

J.N. Darby
